This text presents a unified approach to the wide range of interactions and events which may follow the impact of gas molecules with a metal surface. The scope extends from the physical interactions which lead only to energy exchanges, through physical adsorption, to a discussion of various catalytic processes. Through specific examples, students of adsorption and catalysis are shown how to conduct and interpret experiments. These examples illustrate both the close conceptual and experimental links between adsorption and catalysis, and explore the experimental techniques most often encountered. The work concludes with a detailed case study of the catalytic oxidation of carbon monoxide on palladium and platinum, an important process in the control of automobile exhaust emissions.
