Boucher, M. B., Kyriakou, G., Jewell, A. D., Lewis, E. A., Sykes, E. C. H., Baber, A. E., …Tierney, H. L. (2012). Isolated metal atom geometries as a strategy for selective heterogeneous hydrogenations. Science, 335(6073), 1209-1212. doi:10.1126/science.1215864

Facile dissociation of reactants and weak binding of intermediates are key requirements for efficient and selective catalysis. However, these two variables are intimately linked in a way that does not generally allow the optimization of both properti...
