Recent developments in tuning the structural and functional properties of supported bimetallic nanoalloy catalysts

Supported bimetallic nanoalloys have significantly different properties compared to their monometallic analogues, especially as catalysts. Recent advances in spectroscopic and microscopic techniques have enabled us to study the structural properties of these bimetallic nanoalloys in greater detail. In this chapter, three examples are discussed to emphasize the importance of tuning the structural properties of these materials by different synthesis strategies. These examples further demonstrate how the catalytic properties (activity, selectivity and stability) of these nanoalloys can be improved by tuning their structural properties. These strategies are crucial to develop catalytic materials for a green and sustainable future.
