Abstract

This comprehensive article explores the past, present, and future use of nanotechnologies in the synthesis and development of new catalysts. In the past, the application of nanotechnologies in catalysis began with a focus on reducing the size of catalysts to the nanoscale, leading to improved efficiency and selectivity through recent technological advancements. Currently, nanomaterials like metal nanoparticles, metal oxides, and carbon-based materials are widely used in the synthesis of efficient catalysts. Computational methods like Density Functional Theory (DFT) have enabled the prediction of catalyst activity and selectivity. In the future, advanced techniques such as Atomic Layer Deposition, plasma-enhanced chemical vapor deposition, and electrospinning will lead to the production of even more efficient and selective catalysts. Furthermore, combining nanotechnology with biotechnology will inspire the development of biomimetic catalysts.
