Most synthetic catalysts fall squarely into one of two categories—homogeneous or heterogeneous, each with its characteristic strong points. Few catalytic systems capitalize on the best of both worlds. Now, a study led by chemists at Massachusetts Institute of Technology takes a key step in that direction (J. Am. Chem. Soc. 2017, DOI: 10.1021/jacs.7b10723). Heterogeneous catalysts, especially ones used in electrochemistry, tend to . . .
