Nanocrystals of magnesium oxide react with organophosphorus compounds at room temperature by dissociative chemisorption, which we term "destructive adsorption". This process involves cleavage of P-O and P-F bonds (but not P-C bonds) and immobilization of the resultant molecular fragments. These ultrafine powders have unusual crystalline shapes and possess(More)
