Atomically Tailored Nanocatalysts for Energy Applications

Nanomaterial catalysis is receiving growing interest in sustainable and environmental-friendly energy storage and conversion devices. Catalytically active nanomateri-als have been widely employed as heterogeneous cata-lysts in various photocatalytic or electrocatalytic energy storage and conversion reactions, including hydrogen evolution reaction, oxygen evolution reaction, and oxygen reduction reaction. Since the catalytic activity of nano-materials depends strongly on their physical and chemical structures, it is the kernel of research to design the active sites with atomic precision for the development of high-performance energy devices. Motivated by this emerging trend, this special issue aims to introduce re-cent outstanding research efforts directed towards the atomic engineering of nanomaterials’ structure and catalytic activity.
