Abstract

The subject of metal surface properties has long been of great interest to scientists and a corresponding wealth of experimental and analytical information has been accumulated. In addition, it is clear from the use of more modern theoretical and experimental approaches discussed at this meeting that a great deal of additional information on atomistic and microscopic properties is now potentially available. It is instructive therefore to examine critically the degree to which a typical metal-gas interface system is understood in terms of basic physical and chemical principles. The conclusion is that there is no single such system about which we can claim a basic general understanding. Tungsten surfaces are by far the most extensively studied partly because of their refractory nature and partly because of historical precedent but serious gaps persist in the area of defining critical atomistic and microscopic properties. More recently, considerable useful information on the electron and atomic features of single crystal nickel surfaces has been gained. Although the basic properties of either metal-gas system are far from being adequately understood, it is instructive to discuss these two examples in some detail from the viewpoint of the relevant concepts, models, and methods presented so far at this meeting. This presentation will indicate our present state of understanding in terms both of its achievements and its inadequacies. (Note: This material is drawn to a large extent from a more comprehensive treatment of the subject “Adsorption of Gases on Solids” by Rhodin and Adams(1)).
