Visualisation of reacting single atoms in nanocatalysts under controlled reaction environments using Environmental STEM

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


Environmental-STEM (ESTEM) studies of reacting single atoms in technologically important gold and platinum nanocatalysts in reducting and oxidising environments are presented. The direct observations provide new insights into the dynamic behaviour of single atoms which may be important as catalytic active sites as well as migrating as part of deactivation mechanisms. Possible reaction mechanisms are described briefly
