Active-site/surface cooperativity can enhance heterogeneous organic and organometallic catalysis. We review the powerful role of the solid surface in this context for generating local acidity and, as an inner-sphere ligand, for stabilizing immobilized supramolecular assemblies and unsaturated organometallic complexes that are often unstable in solution.
