Comparative single atom heterogeneous catalysts (SAHCs) on different platforms: a theoretical approach

The nature of SAHC interactions with the matrix is crucial as it controls the electronic structure of the atom, its charge, the coordination pattern and the overall catalytic ensemble. We have checked all these aspects by studying the same single atom in oxides, metals and carbon nitride.

About this collection

The development of single atom catalysts lies at the frontier of catalysis and nanoscience and is rapidly gaining prominence in the drive towards atom-efficient chemical transformations. 
Guest Edited by Prof Javier Pérez-Ramírez (ETH Zurich), Sir John Meurig Thomas (University of Cambridge) and Dr Sharon Mitchell (ETH Zurich), this themed issue will bring together pioneering examples from the research community covering state-of-the-art strategies for the synthesis and advanced characterisation coupled with new experimental and theoretical insights into the catalytic performance of these cutting-edge materials.
