Title: Confinement boosts CO oxidation on an Ni atom embedded inside boron nitride nanotubes

Because of the confinement effect, Ni embedded on the interior surface of BNNT exhibits a much higher catalytic activity for CO oxidation by comparing with that embedded in h-BN or on the outside surface of BNNT.
