Chemists uncover a means to control catalytic reactions

Scientists have found a way to make catalysis more selective, breaking one chemical bond 100 times faster than another. The team of researchers employed a combination of experiment and theory to discover that the position of the molecule on the catalytic surface is a key factor in determining the rate at which particular bonds break.
