Multidisciplinary cooperation leads to catalysts that are up to 50 times more effective

A team of chemists and physicists at Utrecht University have succeeded in designing a new type of catalyst. By combining two metals with atomic precision they created a highly effective catalytic material. The team led by Prof. Petra de Jongh (Chemistry) and Prof. Alfons van Blaaderen (Physics), are publishing their findings in Nature Materials today. Read more about it here.
