Nanostructured Catalysts

  • Martin Schmal
  • Silvia Moya


Nanostructured systems are of great interest from points of view of basic science and technological applications. Within the topic of catalysis, should be highlighted the properties associated with different morphologies, activities and selectivities, which are strongly affected by the shape and particle size; in the case of crystalline metallic phases are oriented crystal faces. The reactions that are influenced by these factors (morphological) are known as structure sensitive reactions.
