Electronic Structure Helps Define Palladium Cluster Reactivity
A link between palladium cluster size, the electronic properties of the cluster, and catalytic activity is being reported by a research group led by the University of Utah’s Scott L. Anderson (Science 2009, 326, 826). The activity of heterogeneous catalysts is known to depend on catalyst cluster size, but a lack of experimental probes for looking at sample structure has prevented a systematic study of catalytic trends. Anderson and colleagues deposited clusters of . . .
