Surface lattice-engineered bimetallic nanoparticles and their catalytic properties

Abstract

When nanoparticles become small (ca. <5 nm), surface stress becomes significant and generates strain that results in a change of surface structures. In this regard, the surface lattice of nanoparticles can be engineered to create strains or other structural changes with atomic positions away from the normal lattice points. Such changes impact the electronic and catalytic properties of nanoparticles. Recently, several groups have reported the change of catalytic and electrocatalytic properties of bimetallic nanoparticles. In this tutorial review, we discuss the principles related to lattice strain and other distorted structures, and the catalytic properties of bimetallic nanostructures.
