Abstract

A review covers the ways by which the size of catalytically active metallic nanoparticles, particularly Pt, can be used in order to tune the catalytic selectivity toward designated products formation; the important role of in situ spectroscopy measurements for molecular-level understanding of size-depended product selectivity; the effect of size-related modifications in the electronic properties of metallic nanoparticles; and the challenges and opportunities in the field of size-dependent selectivity, mainly the synthesis, characterization, and reactivity of subnanometer metallic clusters.
