Here, we demonstrated that in the case of Pt-Cu alloy the conversion of CO over Pt-Cu nanocubes is significantly influenced by the composition and structure near the surface. Our data indicates that step sites do not always hence the catalytic activity. Step sties can act as poisoning for the catalysis.
