    Single-atom catalysis holds significant potential as a disruptive chemical technology. The production of a number of key chemical products, including solar hydrogen, ammonia, and hydrogen peroxide, could be shortly reshaped by the commercialization of new single-atom catalysts and the related new decentralized chemical manufacturing processes. This chapter focuses on four potential applications of single-atom catalysts that may soon significantly impact the chemical and energy sectors central to the current and future industrial societies: synthetic organic chemistry, ammonia and solar hydrogen manufacturing, and hydrogen utilization in low-cost fuel cells.
