In 2011, Zhang’s research team discovered the first atomically dispersed Pt1/FeOx catalysts worldwide and proposed the concept of “single-atom catalysis”. The excellent atomic utilization rate of single-atom catalysts (SACs) in combination with their high specific catalytic activity makes them extremely appealing for environmental remediation. As r...
