Surface Studies of Model Oxide Supported Metal Catalysts

Metals supported on oxide surfaces encompass an important class of reactive interface, particularly in heterogeneous catalysis. Model catalyst surfaces are being mimicked using metals, deposited by MVD or MOCVD, on single crystal oxide surfaces. Adsorption and reaction of gases on these surfaces, and the re-organisation of the surface structures, is being investigated using a combination of STM, TPD, XPS and FT-RAIRS.
