Single-atom alloy Perspective made it onto the JPCL cover!

The jpcl-cover-20sep2018next issue of The Journal of Physical Chemistry Letters will feature cover art from the perspective article ‘Lonely Atoms with Special Gifts: Breaking Linear Scaling Relationships in Heterogeneous Catalysis with Single-Atom Alloys’ by Matthew T. Darby, Michail Stamatakis, Angelos Michaelides, and E. Charles H. Sykes. The cover depicts the atomic structure of a so-called single-atom alloy, which is bimetallic alloy with a low concentration of the catalytically active component. One of these active sites prominently features a methane molecule after C-H bond activation. Dispersing the active component offers potential for well-defined and enhanced catalytic performance.
