Nanoparticles on nanosteps

New technologies are starved for efficient and inexpensive catalysts. The best materials are made up of nanoparticles, whose properties are the result of their small size. The single catalyst particles have, however, an ugly tendency to cluster into larger particles, thereby reducing their effectiveness. A group of scientists has developed a material that maintains the stability of a “dispersed” catalyst, thus maximiing the efficiency of the process and decreasing costs and wastage.
