Surface Organometallic Chemistry: Paving the Way Beyond Well-Defined Supported Organometallics and Single-Site Catalysis

Surface Organometallic Chemistry: Paving the Way Beyond Well-Defined Supported Organometallics... oparticle-based heterogeneous catalysts relies on a strin- gent control over the surface chemistry, enabled by the judicious choice of dehydroxylated supports and tailored organometallic precursors. Aided by the advanced char- acterization methods, the field of surface organometallic chemistry (SOMC) has provided molecular-level insights into the mechanism and the nature of active sites of vari- ous industrial catalysts. The development of SOMC over the last decades yielded supported catalysts outperform- ing their homogeneous precursors and provided design principles for catalyst development. Applying the rational structure-activity approach of homogeneous catalysis to the surface species leads to further advances of SOMC, includ- Keywords Heterogeneous catalysis · Petrochemical ing functional materials for sustainable chemistry, energy catalysis · Reaction intermediates  · (MAS)NMR · storage and imaging, to mention just a few. Spectroscopy and general characterization 1 Introduction Heterogeneous catalysis is a cornerstone of the chemical industry because it enables efficient transformations of a broad range of raw and feedstock materials. Heterogene- ous catalysts include zeolites, oxides and sulfide materi- als, supported nanoparticles and isolated metal single sites. Common to all industrial heterogeneous catalysts is the difficulty to attain molecular level understanding of the structure of the active sites and the elementary steps * Christophe Copéret of catalytic Catalysis Letters Springer Journals
