Control and manipulation of gold nanocatalysis: effects of metal oxide support thickness and composition.


Control and tunability of the catalytic oxidation of CO by gold clusters deposited on MgO surfaces grown on molybdenum, Mo(100), to various thicknesses are explored through temperature-programmed reaction measurements on mass-selected 20-atom gold clusters and via first-principles density functional theory calculations. Au(20) was chosen because in the gas… (More)
