In this contribution, we discuss the application of tip-enhanced Raman spectroscopy (TERS) to image local atomic site-specific electronic and catalytic properties of bimetallic Pd monolayer/Au(111)  and Pt nanoisland/Au(111) surface . The high spatial resolution (<3 nm) of TERS allows us to reveal distinct properties of surface atoms that correlate to the catalytic properties. We further probe the local generation and diffusion of OH radicals on a Pd monolayer/Au(111) bimetallic catalyst surface . The reactive OH radicals can be catalytically generated from hydrogen peroxide (H2O2) at the active Pd step edge site and could diffuse to both the Au and Pd surface sites to induce oxidative reactions, with a diffusion length estimated to be about 5.4 nm. The results suggest the capability of TERS, as a plasmon-enhanced nanoscopy, to in-situ study catalysis with unprecedent spatial resolution and rich molecular identity.  J.-H. Zhong, B.
