   Abstrct:

  Tremendous catalysis can often appear with 2D aspect on surfaces, which may be hard to produce in homogeneous systems, involving 3D diffusion of active species from the bulk. New strategy and concept lead to tailor-made catalyst design for target reactions in green sustainable processes, where in situ characterization of the surfaces is inevitably important for understanding the origin and mechanism of the tremendous catalysis and dynamic surface events.1, 2
