Part of the NATO ASI Series book series (NSSB, volume 283)


The study of catalytic processes involving transition metals is one of the most active areas in modern chemistry 1. The development of powerful experimental techniques, in particular spectroscopic methods, has been a prerequisite for the advance in thr field. This development has also raised many questions at the atomic and molecular level which are a challenge torn theory, and theoretical aspects of the field are receiving a rapidly increasing attention. Platinum is of special interest due to its importance both for heterogeneous and homogeneous catalysis.
