Influence of boron doping on the dynamics of formation of Os metal nanoclusters on graphitic surfaces

Author affiliations

Abstract

The fabrication of osmium nanoclusters from single atoms has been studied in real-time on B-doped and B-free graphitic surfaces. The dynamics of nucleation on both surfaces are identified, captured, and reported. The nucleation is ca. 2× faster on B-doped surface compared to the B-free surface (38 pm min−1versus 18 pm min−1), suggesting osmium–boron interactions within the nanomaterials.
