Considering the NO adsorption process, starting from theoretical considerations, evaluation of the variation of the properties of metallic clusters versus their size and composition leads to a prediction of the NO adsorption mode on these nanoentities. Then, based on experimental results obtained mostly through X-ray absorption spectroscopy, we have connected the adsorption mode of the molecule to the behaviour of the metallic cluster following the adsorption process. A simple hypothesis leads us to discuss the catalytic activity of nanometer scale metallic clusters following NO adsorption.
