Single nanocatalyst behavior revealed

Before you can design the perfect nanoparticle catalyst, you first need to understand the fundamental science that governs their reactivity, say scientists from the US. And they claim to have done just that, using single molecule spectroscopy to reveal that nanocatalyst surface properties respond to changes to the concentration of reactants.
