In this contribution, we would like to underline the peculiar chemical properties of nanometer scale metallic particles. To attain this goal, we select the case of DeNox catalysis (NOx reduction to nitrogen molecule) for which such nanomaterials play a crucial role. Experimental data as well as recent theoretical calculation through density functional theory are used to assess the relationship between the adsorption mode of NO and the behaviour of nanometre scale metallic particles.
