Abstract

tic processes under nanoconfinement at the single-molecule and single-particle level. Variable single molecular mass transport behaviour reveals the heterogeneity of the confined environment in the nanopores. With the capability of decoupling mass transport factors from reaction kinetics in the well-defined platform, we quantitatively uncovered a confinement-induced enhancement in the activity of platinum nanoparticles inside the nanopores. The combination of the unique model catalyst and the single-molecule super-localization imaging technique paves the way to understanding nanoconfinement effects in catalysis.
