Heterogeneous catalysis is usually accomplished with materials in nanoparticulate form. In this presentation I will describe one of our approaches to understanding catalytic processes and materials. This approach involves the fabrication of ultra-nanoparticulate model catalysts using MVD (metal vapour deposition) and MOCVD (metal-organic chemical vapour deposition) to form particles in the size range 1-10 nm. which can be imaged at very high spatial resolution (and in some cases at atomic resolution) using STM (scanning tunnelling microscopy).
