Principles and practice of heterogeneous catalysis
Setting the scene the fundamentals of adsorption - structural and dynamical considerations, isotherms and energetics characterizing catalysts and their surfaces the significance of pore structure andExpand
Photocatalysis for new energy production: Recent advances in photocatalytic water splitting reactions for hydrogen production
Abstract Recent advances in photocatalytic water splitting reactions, especially under visible light irradiation, are reviewed here. In line with such work, the development of various uniqueExpand
Z-Contrast tomography: a technique inthree-dimensional nanostructural analysis based on Rutherfordscattering
A method for determining the three-dimensional structure of inorganic specimens using images formed from Rutherford scattered electrons, at a spatial resolution of 1 nm in all directions, isExpand
The existence of endothermic adsorption
It is often incorrectly stated, but far more frequently erroneously implied, that adsorption is always an exothermic process.
Metal oxides as heterogeneous catalysts for oxygen evolution under photochemical conditions
Metal oxides, in the form of dispersed powders, have been tested as potential catalysts for the four-electron oxidation of water to O2 under photochemical conditions. The most efficient catalystsExpand
Bridging hydrodyl groups in zeolitic catalysts: a computer simulation of their structure, vibrational properties and acidity in protonated faujasites (HY zeolites)
Abstract The structure and properties of the four possible bridging hydroxyl groups in silicon-rich H-faujasite (zeolite Y) are studied by lattice-energy minimization carried out within the classicalExpand
Electron tomography of nanoparticle catalysts on porous supports: A new technique based on Rutherford scattering
We report a new variant of three-dimensional (3D) electron microscopy, Z-contrast tomography, in which, by use of a field-emission gun scanning transmission electron microscope equipped with aExpand
Electronic structure of the oxides of lead. Part 2.—An XPS study of bulk rhombic PbO, tetragonal PbO, β-PbO2 and Pb3O4
XPS studies of the bulk oxides of lead reveal no clear evidence for the presence of the expected two oxidation states of lead in Pb3O4. They also show that the Pb 4ƒ binding energies of the twoExpand
Synthesis and characterization of some heterometal-substituted ammonium gallophosphates
Various metal-substituted ammonium gallophosphates (metal is Zn, Mn, Mg, and Fe) have been synthesized. Characterization by X-ray diffraction (XRD), X-ray absorption spectroscopy (XAS), and P-31 MASExpand
