ABSTRACT
<p>This geometry-generation method within a Monte Carlo-based 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 system-fuel cell is studied as an example.</p>
