We report a facile surface fluorination strategy for restricting Pt nanoparticle sintering through providing anchoring sites on the TiO2 support and enhancing metal-support interaction via improved electronic interaction without sacrificing the active sites. The fluorine-tailored Pt/TiO2 exhibits excellent sintering resistance and significant activity enhancement in the catalytic oxidation of toluene.
