Abstract:

Inelastic Tunneling Spectroscopy has been used to study model catalyst systems. Model systems include oxidized alumina as a model for gamma-alumina and oxidized magnesium as a model for magnesia. Evaporated metals serve as models for supported metal catalysts. Detailed studies include CO adsorption and hydrogenation on rhodium, sulfur poisoning and the effect of top metal electrodes on the spectra. Author
