Bimetallic catalyst design: where brain meets brawn The cover picture represents a methodology to design bimetallic catalysts by synergistically combining high-throughput experiments and quantum mechanical calculations. A robotic arm is used to represent the high-throughput experimentation system. In their Full Paper on p. 3712 ff., N. R. Peela et al. demonstrate the details of the methodology. Ag-Pd bimetallic catalysts are found to be the best catalysts for the propane total oxidation reaction. Owing to its generic nature, the methodology can be used for designing catalysts for any vapor-phase metal-catalyzed reaction. This artwork was created by using images from Presenter Media.
