Nanomaterials, particularly colloidal nanoparticles, hold great promise for heterogeneous catalysis due to their large surface area, concentration of undercoordinated surface sites and their potential for dispersion on the surface of an oxide or other support. Catalytic nanostructured materials can achieve higher activity when compared to bulk particles, and also higher selectivity - an important issue in the development of greener synthesis methods.

This special symposium focuses on the novel design, synthesis, and commercial production of nanostructured materials for catalysis applications.
