Cover Picture: Playing with Structures at the Nanoscale: Designing Catalysts by Manipulation of Clusters and Nanocrystals as Building Blocks (ChemPhysChem 17/2013)
M. Cargnello et al. report on p. 3869 recent advances in the preparation of tailored catalysts by designing and preparing the component building blocks and by assembling them in a controlled fashion. This novel paradigm offers exciting opportunities to help improve currently available catalytic systems in terms of activity, stability, and selectivity.
