Molecular Organometallic Chemistry and Catalysis on Metal-Oxide Surfaces

  • B. C. Gates
Part of the Springer Series in Surface Sciences book series (SSSUR, volume 5)


The supported metals used widely in catalysis are aggregates or crystallites of various sizes, shapes, and compositions dispersed on stable large-surface- area metal oxides such as γ-Al2O3. Much has been learned about the structures of the metals in these materials from characterization techniques such as high- resolution electron microscopy (Chap.15) and extended X-ray absorption fine structure (EXAFS) [4.1], and a strong foundation of quantitative catalytic reaction kinetics has been laid down [4.2], but there is still a gaping void in our understanding of how catalyst structure at the atomic and molecular level is related to performance. Progress has been made in filling this void from the foundation of molecular surface science of single metal crystals with simple adsorbates; these have yielded to structural determination by high-vacuum techniques such as low-energy electron diffraction (LEED), ultraviolet photoelectron spectroscopy (UPS), and high-resolution electron energy-loss spectroscopy (HREELS), and have been investigated as catalysts at high pressures in the same apparatus [4.3].
