Liquid phase (rotary reactor) and condensation phase (rotary and static) metal vapor syntheses were used to produce subnanometre particles of Fe, Ru and Fe/Ru, as well as Ni, Pt and Ni/Pt on SiO2 and Al2O3, through the intermediacy of labile bis-tuolene and tris-ethylene metal (0) precursors. These materials demonstrate unusual catalytic functions in the conversion of hydrocarbons and have many remarkable properties, which were examined. Intimate details of the spatial and electronic structures of these materials were determined. The catalytic results for the bimetallic samples are explained by a computer model of the structure of the supported particles.
