The physical and chemical properties of nanostructured mixed-metal catalysts
The main targets of this study has been to synthesize well-defined nanoclusters of Ni, Co, Pt, Rh and Pd as well as mixed-metal nanoclusters on ultrathin oxide surfaces and to characterize their detailed morphology using scanning probe techniques. The focus of the research is an understanding of the effects of metal-substrate interactions and overall composition on the structure/stability of single metal and mixed-metal nanoclusters and their catalytic activity.
