The fancy modeled composite catalysts we designed and fabricated have well-defined surfaces and interfaces. The concept and materials we demonstrated have great influence on evaluating the exact relationship between the anisotropic surface/interface structure and catalytic/sensing properties of composite nanocatalysts.
