Nanocatalysis is without doubt one of the most fun subfields to have emerged from nanoscience. Its important target is the keep watch over of chemical reactions by way of altering the dimensions, dimensionality, chemical composition and morphology of the response middle and via altering the kinetics utilizing nanopatterning of the response facilities. This procedure opens up new avenues for atom-by-atom layout of nanocatalysts with particular and tunable chemical task, specificity, and selectivity. This ebook is meant to offer a pedagogical and methodological review of this intriguing and transforming into box and to spotlight particular examples of present learn. during this method, it serves either as an instructive creation for graduate scholars who plan to go into the sphere and as a reference paintings for scientists already lively during this and similar areas.

Example text

The different techniques presently utilized to investigate the chemical and catalytic activity of mass-selected metal clusters will be summarized in the following together with a few selected reaction examples that aim to demonstrate the applications of the various experimental approaches. Flow Tube Reactor This is the oldest method to investigate metal cluster reactions. In its most simple form, an extender is attached to a laser vaporization or discharge cluster source which permits the downstream addition of the reactive gases.

This observation is explained by the reaction of oxygen and deuterium atoms on the clusters to form water, which subsequently desorbs [169]. The catalytic water-formation reaction is observed to proceed very efficiently on all investigated platinum cluster sizes with more than seven atoms displaying only moderate variations in the reaction probability with size. Low-Energy Ion Guide As discussed above, molecular beam experiments are often strongly handicapped by fragmentation phenomena, which commonly occur during reactive collisions, electronic transitions, neutralization or ionization processes.

The optimized ground state structures (labeled “A” for each size) and close lying low-energy isomers are also displayed [120]. A change from planar geometry to 3D-structural motifs is apparent between Au12 − and Au13 − geometric motif of gold clusters up to surprisingly large sizes [120] as indicated by the ion mobility data (see below) [118].
