Catalysis can be considered as one of the most sucessful application of nanoscience. The origin is investigated of the beneficial effects of nanostructuring for catalytic functional materials. It occurs that local geometric/electronic properties are the decisive factor. Size is rather an indirect parameter to describe the function of an active particle. As well developed the nanoscience concept may be for metals in catalysis, as poorly accessible are oxidic nanoparticles with pre-defined catalytic properties. The contribution describes a strategy currently put into operation in which high throughput experimentation is used to map out the synthetic parameter space for defining the synthesis of chemically "simple" but structurally complex oxidic nanoparticles suitable for selective oxidation catalysis.
