Surface/interfacial catalysis on a series of oxide substrates and metal/oxide interfaces has been reviewed. Special attention has been paid to those systems in which the oxide substrates are structurally defined with certain exposed facets, and the metal assembling is well controlled with desired particle size and narrow particle size distribution. The distinct catalytic behaviors over the selected systems have been discussed in line with their specific surface/interfacial structure features as well as other surface properties. The tactics and cations how to build up the novel metal/oxide interfacial structures are provided, and the guideline for extended reaction exploration is also suggested. Success in structure and performance control on these important systems is highly valuable for designing more selective and efficient catalyst in practical applications.
