The field of catalysis continuously reinvents itself and many of the recent advances in sustainable energy production, conversion and storage are a result of the rapidly-emerging nanotechnology. A key element of the nanotechnology-guided design and synthesis of catalysts involves a combination of the enhancement of catalytic activity and the reduction of cost for catalysts containing noble metals, a multi-billion dollar global industry.  The ability to harness the large surface area-to-volume ratios and the unique surface binding sites of nanoparticles, especially in heterogeneous catalysis, constitutes a major driving force for both fundamental research and practical applications of nanocatalysts.  The design, synthesis, and characterization of metal and alloy nanoparticles ranging from subnanometer to a few nanometers are now in the center of nanotechnology in catalysis.  This presentation will highlight some latest developments of our investigations of the structural-catalytic synergy of nanoalloy catalysts in sustainable energy production, conversion and storage reactions (e.g., carbon monoxide oxidation, hydrogen or alcohol fuel cell reaction, and lithium-air battery reaction).
