Using a powerful electron microscope, a research group at Arizona State University has observed dynamic behavior in small catalytic nanoparticles during energy-related chemical reactions. Here, you see solid spherical nickel nanoparticles (left) transforming to hollow nickel oxide nanoparticles (right) on exposure to methane and oxygen gas.
