Surface and Interface Design for Heterogeneous Catalysis

Abstract

Surface and interface design is an efficient strategy to innovate advanced catalysts. A prerequisite is fundamental understanding of structure-performance relations of catalyst nanoparticles which, however, remains as great challenge due to the complexity of heterogeneous catalysis. Recent progresses in catalytic nanocrystals with uniform and well-defined structures, in-situ characterization techniques and theoretical calculations have offered opportunities for fundamental studies of heterogeneous catalysis, and achieved outputs are turning the innovation of efficient catalysts via surface and interface design into a reality. Herein, the recent advances in the fundamental understanding-directed rational surface and interface design for heterogeneous catalysis, including crystal phase design, morphology/facets design, and size design, are presented. Perspectives are also discussed for the innovation of efficient catalysts via fundamental understanding-directed surface and interface design followed by controlled synthesis.
