Precious metal (PM)-support interaction is one of the most attractive directions in current research on PM supported ceriabased catalysts. In this paper, the possible mechanisms that explain the occurrence of PM-support interaction, the influence of this interaction on catalytic reactions as well as the corresponding research progress in control of this interaction are summarized. Moreover, potential research orientations on PM-support interaction in the future are prospected.
