The principal investigators have developed new and innovative methods for the preparation of catalytic systems consisting of very small metal clusters supported on an oxide and for the preparation of nano-structured oxides for supporting catalysts or for performing catalysis. Theory was used to analyze many of the observations or to propose new catalytic systems.
