9780122772511: Impact of Surface Science on Catalysis, Volume 45 (Advances in Catalysis)

Surface science emerged in the 1960s with the development of reliable ultrahigh vacuum apparatus, providing exact structures of surfaces of metal single crystals, information about their compositions, and relationships between surface structure and composition and catalytic reaction rates. Catalysis, the acceleration of a chemical reaction by a catalyst (substance), provided much of the driving force for the early development of surface science.

As surface science continues its rapid development, this book illustrates how it is still driven by the challenges of catalysis and how both theory and scanning tunneling microscopy have forcefully emerged as essential tools. It is also evident how surface science continues to serve as the foundation of catalytic science.

This is a compendium written by leading surface scientists presenting an incisive assessment of up-to-date theoretical and experimental results constituting the foundation of fundamental understanding of surface catalysis.

This paperback edition is adapted from the serial Advances in Catalysis, Volume 45, ISBN: 0-12-007845-7.

Product Description:

Since 1948, this series has filled the gap between the papers that report on and the textbooks that teach in the diverse areas of catalysis research. The editors of and contributors to Advances in Catalysis are dedicated to recording progress in this area. Each volume of Advances in Catalysis contains articles covering a subject of broad interest.

Advances in Catalysis 45 is dedicated to a single theme: the impact of surface science on catalysis.

COVERAGE INCLUDES:
· Dynamics of reactions at surfaces on time scales ranging from 10-13s to 103s
· Density functional theory of adsorption and surface chemical reactions
· Catalysts in action: atomic-resolution STM images elucidating elementary reactions on surfaces
· Adsorption energetics and bonding: femtomole calorimetry and first-principles theory
· Active sites on oxide catalysts: from single crystals to powders
· Model supported catalysts: metal particles on well-ordered oxide layers
· Vibrational spectra of reaction intermediates on catalyst surfaces by sum frequency generation

From the Back Cover:

Written by leading surface scientists, Impact of Surface Science on Catalysis is a compendium of up-to-date theoretical and experimental results fundamental to understanding surface catalysis. The contents illustrate the dramatic developments in surfaces and adsorbates emerging from density functional theory, calorimetry, and scanning tunneling microscopy. Results of sum frequency generation provide explanations of how reactive intermediates on surfaces are measured during catalysis. Additionally, new data illustrate structures and reactivities of metal oxide surfaces and metal particles dispersed on thin, well-ordered oxide layers.
