Nanoparticles: The complex rhythm of chemistry

Most commercial chemicals are produced using catalysts. Usually, these catalysts consist of tiny metal nanoparticles that are placed on an oxidic support. Similar to a cut diamond, whose surface consists of facets oriented in different directions, a catalytic nanoparticle also possesses crystallographically different facets—and these facets can have different chemical properties.
