Structure insensitivity: Application of the surface electronic gas model

Abstract

Structure sensitive and insensitive reactions with nonuniformly reactive adsorbates are discussed in terms of the surface electronic gas model using the Polanyi parameter (α). For the liquid-phase hydrogenation it was demonstrated, that the reaction is structure insensitive whenα is equal to unity, which in terms of the surface electronic gas model means that effective charges of adsorbed species and activated complexes in transition state are equal.
