CATALYSTS, in one form or another, lie at the heart of the great majority of industrial and natural chemical transformations. Worldwide, more than $3 trillion worth of chemicals and materials are manufactured annually through catalytic chemistry. With catalysts mediating nearly every chemical process associated with production of today's fuels, the energy sector is particularly tied to these reaction-enabling agents. That connection is expected to grow even stronger in the coming years as investigators develop new . . .
