Table of Contents

Dynamics of Reactions at Surfaces Theoretical Surface Science and Catalysis - Calculations and Concepts Scanning Tunneling Microscopy Studies of Catalytic Reactions Adsorption Energetics and Bonding from Femtomole Calorimetry and from First Principles Theory Active Sites on Oxies: From Single Crystals to Catalysts Catalysis and Surface Science: What do we learn from studies of oxide-supported cluster model systems Sum Frequency Generation Surface Vibrational Spectroscopy Studies of Catalytica Reactions on Metal Single-Crystal Surfaces


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.

Key Features

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


Industrial and academic chemists and chemical engineers in the field of catalysis.

"...the contributions to this volume without exception, all heavyweight performers on the world stage have produced admirably lucid chapters, the one by Norskov and Hammer being among the best available synoptic accounts of the use of density functional theory to describe reactions at surfaces. This is the first time ever for editors of 'Advances' to focus exclusively on a signal theme. It is to be hoped that they will repeat the practice frequently in the future." @source:--ANGEWANDTE CHEMIE
