An energetically favorable reaction system can be constructed by using catalysts with high oxidation ability that allows low-temperature reactions. However, high oxidation ability leads to complete oxidation of organic compounds, indicating the non-applicability of such catalysts to organic synthetic reactions. The present study aims to suppress the complete oxidation pathway by establishing a concept of controlling surface phenomena by a field-effect-transistor configuration. The “field-effect surface chemistry” concept will be applied to control catalytic ability of nanosheets toward the oxidative coupling of methane.
