Can't keep me down: Silver nanoclusters (NCs), formed by spontaneous atomic-level dispersion of non-nano silver onto Al2O3 surface, show self- regenerative properties during redox aging above 900 °C and, consequently, higher activity than state-of-the-art CO oxidation catalysts after the aging. Size-dependence of the activity and DFT calculation indicate that Ag atoms at corner/edge sites are the active site of Ag NCs.
