A Preparative-Scale Reaction Using Platinum Clusters with a Single-Digit Atomicity Realized

Scientists at Tokyo Institute of Technology (Tokyo Tech) have recently developed a fully scalable method for the synthesis of atom-precise platinum clusters for potential use in catalytic applications. This method could provide a new pathway for large-scale production of atom-precise clusters. To demonstrate this, the hydrogenation of styrene was performed.
