Abstract: This review illustrates how catalytically active molecular structures are created on oxide surfaces by attachment of metal complexes with subsequent structural transformation and molecular imprinting on the surfaces. Also discussed is how the designed surfaces are characterized in situ by physical techniques including conventional and time-resolved X-ray absorption fine structure. The structural transformation and molecular imprinting for attached metal complexes can provide a new class of catalytic materials with a high complexity for selective catalysis including shape-selective and asymmetric catalysis.
