Integrated nanocatalysts: a unique class of heterogeneous catalysts

Author affiliations

Abstract

Nanoparticles are regarded as attractive candidates for heterogeneous catalysis in various imperative catalytic processes as they are now easy to prepare with a desired size, structure, morphology and composition. Advanced integrated nanocatalysts (INCs) are considered to be a new class of heterogeneous catalysts distinctly different from the conventional ones. INCs are multicomponent materials with a nanoarchitecture typically designed by incorporating nanoparticles into a defined matrix. Thus, INCs can exhibit various morphologies depending on the targeted catalytic process and the type of the immobilized catalyst. In this highlight, we would like to demonstrate the sophisticated nanoarchitecture, synthetic approaches and unique catalytic properties of specifically selected INCs.
