Abstract

We demonstrate that PdAu single-atom alloy model catalysts offer a heterogeneous route to selective Würtz-type C–C coupling. Specifically, when methyl iodide is exposed to an otherwise unreactive Au(111) surface, single Pd atoms in the surface layer promote C–I dissociation and C–C coupling, leading to the selective formation of ethane.
