Shape up and ship out: Shape-controlled Pd nanocrystals have been synthesized with lattice strain generated from different sources. During electrocatalysis, decreased potentials for CO stripping and increased current densities for formic-acid oxidation are observed for the strained nanoparticles. In the gas-phase hydrogenation of ethylene, the activity of the strained nanoparticles was lower than that of single-crystalline Pd nanoparticles.
