Optimization of the facet structure of transition-metal catalysts applied to the oxygen reduction reaction

Optimization of the facet structure of transition-metal catalysts applied to the oxygen reduction reaction

While much effort has been devoted to understanding how nanoparticle morphology can be leveraged to improve catalytic activity, engineering their microstructure from first principles to this end has remained difficult. Now a methodology for designing the optimal structure of a solid catalyst with the aim of achieving the highest possible activity for surface-sensitive reactions has been developed.
