Controllably interfacing with metal: a strategy for enhancing CO oxidation on oxide catalysts by surface polarization.

Heterogeneous catalysis often involves charge transfer from catalyst surface to adsorbed molecules, whose activity thus depends on the surface charge density of catalysts. Here, we demonstrate a unique solution-phase approach to achieve controllable interfacial lengths in oxide-metal hybrid structures. Resulting from their different work functions, surface… CONTINUE READING
