Cooperative Catalysis toward Oxygen Reduction Reaction under Dual Coordination Environments on Intrinsic AMnO Solid-state molybdenum sulfide clusters with an octahedral metal framework [Mo 6 S i 2 S i−a 6/2]S a–i 6/2 (=Mo 6 S 8), the Chevrel phases, have been synthesized in large numbers. This review reports recent advances in the development of coordinatively unsaturated metal atoms on solid-state clusters with an octahedral metal framework and their application to organic catalytic reactions. Halogen- or sulfur-deficient metal sites in an octahedral metal cluster framework are retained intact and act as catalytically active sites even at high temperatures of 400–700 °C. In solid-state halide clusters and sulfide clusters, metal cluster frameworks are linked in two- or three-dimensions to form a cluster network. Application of solid-state early-transition metal clusters as catalysts. Solid-state halide and sulfide clusters are reviewed as new catalysts.

The main application covered here is catalysis, and the methods for characterization of the cluster‐modified surfaces are described. The shell structure for this class of clusters is determined by the electrons and the filling of those shells that have energy states available to the electrons. 7 These clusters have attracted much attention because of their superconductivity. 3 Nonstoichiometric ligand defects in sulfide clusters are catalytically active. 5 1.4 TRANSITION METAL CLUSTERS CONTAINING MAIN GROUP ELEMENTS 47 1.5 APPLICATION OF TRANSITION METAL CLUSTER 54 1.5.1 Catalysis by metal cluster compounds 55 1.5.2 Metal cluster mediated Organic transformation 59 1.5.3 Transition metal cluster to Nanocluster 62 1.5.4 Nonlinear Optical Properties 63 1.5.5 Potential use of some metal clusters as hydrogen storage materials 65 The properties of cluster‐modified surfaces are important for their application.
