This geometrygeneration method within a Monte Carlobased approach enables the simulation of kinetics on nanostructured catalytic and electrocatalytic systems relevant for industrial applications. The method is applicable to realistic catalyst geometries, and an industrially relevant systemfuel cell is studied as an example.
