Surface chemistry is an essential and developing area of physical chemistry and one that has become increasingly interdisciplinary. The Second Edition of Surface Science: Foundations of Catalysis and Nanoscience has been fully revised and updated to reflect all the latest developments in the field and now includes an extensive discussion about nanoparticle growth and the quantum confinement effects in nanoscale systems. Two new chapters have been added and discuss The Liquid/Solid Interface and Non-Thermal Reactions, and Photon and Electron Stimulated Chemistry and Atom Manipulation. There are now many more worked examples included throughout to help students develop their problem-solving skills.

From the Back Cover:

Presented from a rigorous physical perspective, this comprehensive, modern introduction to the multidisciplinary world of surface science provides the reader with a well-rounded understanding, not only of how chemistry works at surfaces, but also how to understand and probe the dynamics of surface reactions.

Proclaimed a "classic of its time" the first edition of Surface Science met with wide success. This new edition features substantial updating and revision of material covered in the first edition as well as the incorporation of two new chapters - one on liquid interfaces and a  second on laser, light, electron and scanning probe tip induced processes, as well as expanded end of chapters exercises.

Opening with an examination of the importance of heterogeneous reactions, it lays the foundations for an understanding of chemical reactions at surfaces through a detailed treatment of surface electronic and geometric structure. Reactivity and and with surfaces is clearly explained from thermal processes as well as reactivity stimulated by electrons and photons. Fundamental principles such as adsorption, desorption and reactions between adsorbates are examined, with extensive coverage of developments in the growth of nanostructures, epitaxial layers and Langmuir-Blodgett films, as well as treatment of the etching of surfaces.

Surface Science: Foundations of Catalysis and Nanoscience:

  • Features a modern molecular view of surface chemical reaction dynamics delivered with a careful pedagogical approach.
  • introduces both theoretical and experimental techniques, with an extensive bibliography.
  • Includes new chapters on liquid and stimulated chemistry; extensively revised chapters on catalysis, etching and growth; special sections on frontiers of  surface science.

Suitable for all students taking courses in surface chemistry in departments of chemistry, physics, chemical engineering and materials science, as well as for researchers and professionals requiring an up to date review of the subject.

Review:

"This book should be compulsory reading for every postgraduate student starting to do research in surface science and is probably the best book on the market for undergraduate students." (The Higher Education Academy Physical Sciences Centre, December 2008)
