Résumé : Metal nanoparticles have long been used as model systems for studying catalytic reactions. The emergence of shape controlled nanocrystals with well-defined morphologies, from simple geometries to complex shapes such as high index surface facets, has led to intensive studies of shape-dependent catalytic activity. Controllable nanoparticle synthesis also enables reaction pathways to be manipulated for a range of applications. This talk will highlight some of the research going on within my group on the use of nanoparticle catalysts in cross coupling chemical reactions and semiconductor nanowire synthesis.
