Bimetallic Supported Catalysts from Single-source Precursors

In order to obtain synergistic effects, two (or more) metals need to be associated intimately within supported nanoparticles. However, it is very difficult to ensure homogeneity of composition using conventional preparation procedures starting from commercial metal precursors. In this chapter, we will show how mixed-metal molecular complexes as well-defined single-source precursors allow the preparation of supported metal nanoparticles with controlled compositions. Special emphasis will be placed on metal clusters.
