Here we investigate the optimization of the catalytic behavior of Au, Ag, Pd, Rh, and Os atomic systems via charge modification and conclude that anionic atomic systems are optimal and therefore ideal for catalyzing the oxidation of water to peroxide, with anionic Os being the best candidate. This conclusion should also be applicable to the oxidation of methane to methanol without CO2 emission, with the anionic Os being the best catalyst.
