Could low-cost superatomic materials replace costlier elements?

By / January 20, 2010

Based on the insights they are gaining from spectroscopic analysis of superatoms, a group out of Penn State thinks it might be possible to manipulate these materials to find low-cost replacements for expensive catalytic materials, such as platinum. The concept of “superatoms” has been around since at least 1995. They are clusters of atoms or…
