Nanoscale and well dispersed catalyst particles offer a large number of advantages: no diffusion resistance, easy accessibility to reactants, and a large number of active sites. In coal liquefaction, highly dispersed catalysts are especially needed because the catalyst particles are only able to influence reactions within their immediate vicinity.
