On examples of industrially important reactions, the joint experimental and theoretical study demonstrates that new catalysts can be designed by controlling the size and composition of subnanometer to nanometer size clusters, by the choice of dopants, additives and support, as well as by controlling the oxidation state of the catalysts.
