Small Metal Particles: A Bridge between Theory and Practice

  • Geoffrey C. Bond
Part of the NATO Advanced Study Institutes Series book series (NSSB, volume 16)

Abstract

When using metals as catalysts, common sense dictates that wherever possible they should be in the form of very small particles, having a high surface to volume ratio, and hence exposing the maximum possible fraction of the total atoms present to the gas phase. Fortunately it is relatively easy to prepare metal particles less than 100 Å in size, by methods to be described below: they exist in many catalysts in industrial use, and are easily studied in the laboratory.
