Researchers Gain Control Over Nanoscale Structure Of Catalysts
Solid catalysts have a reputation for being tricky to make and control. Unlike liquid-phase catalysts, which generally are discrete molecules with clearly defined structures, the solid variety typically consists of variously shaped particles of one material intimately mixed and fused with other materials. That complexity makes it difficult to control these catalysts’ structures on a microscopic scale. Yet a number of researchers have recently devised synthesis methods for doing just that.
