Abstract | Full Text

Understanding the behavior and structural transformation of metal species under reaction conditions is instrumental for developing more efficient and stable catalysts. Here, the authors reveal the evolution and stabilization of subnanometric Pt species confined in MCM-22 zeolite using in situ transmission electron microscopy.
