Co-ddling together: Boron and cobalt chemistry allow for stabilization of a complex architecture on the nanoscale for a widely used CoB catalyst. Through nanoscale-resolution microscopy and spectroscopy techniques, the amorphous B-based phases, which stabilize the unusually small 1–3 nm hcp Co0 nanoparticles, are identified. This microstructure explains the high catalytic activity for the generation of hydrogen from sodium borohydride.
