The goal of Project Area A is to develop a quantitative, atomically-resolved mechanistic understanding of the main reactions involved in emission control catalysis using Pt and Pd-based nanoparticles supported on various metal oxides. For this purpose, novel experimental methods will be used to prepare and study the behavior of model catalysts comprising size-selected clusters and nanoparticles.
