Abstract:

The full potential of modern surface analysis techniques are beginning to be realized in studies of the chemical behavior of surfaces. Single crystal surfaces are often very active catalysts and are, thus, ideal substrates for studies of model reactions using molecular beams. Subsurface oxygen has been found to have a significant effect on the catalytic activity of several transition metals including nickel, cobalt, platinum, and rhodium. Author
