Dr. Angel Cuesta Atomic Ensemble Effects in Electrocatalysis: The Site-Knockout Strategy ChemPhysChem 12
It′s a knockout! Removing only one kind of site from the surface of a single-crystal electrode with a regular array of an inert adsorbate, while leaving the electronic properties of the atoms that remain free unaffected (the site-knockout strategy, see picture), is the most appropriate way to study atomic ensemble effects without interference from electronic effects. Cyanide-modified Pt(111) surfaces, as reviewed here, are particularly suitable for this kind of study.
