This work will elucidate how the finite temperature dynamics of metal particles and substrate/metal particle charge transfer contribute to the catalytic activity of Au nanoparticles towards the CO oxidation reaction. It provides fundamental answers to the questions arising from metal particle/reducible oxide support charge transfer and its role in catalysis.
