Back Cover: Size-Dependent Phase Transformation of Catalytically Active Nanoparticles Captured In Situ (Angew. Chem. Int. Ed. 5/2014)
Uncovering the size-dependent properties of a working catalyst requires a combination of designer catalyst preparation and novel characterization. In their Communication on page 1342 ff., M. Claeys et al. present a trifecta of catalyst synthesis with two unique reaction chambers that respectively characterize a catalyst's magnetic and diffraction properties and where a long-debated size-dependent deactivation of a cobalt catalyst during Fischer–Tropsch synthesis is exposed.
