CO oxidation on Pd ( 100 ) at technologically relevant pressure conditions : First-principles kinetic Monte Carlo study

The possible significance of oxide formation for the catalytic activity of transition metals in heterogeneous oxidation catalysis has evoked a lively discussion over the recent years. On the more noble transition metals such as Pd, Pt, or Ag , the low stability of the common bulk oxides primarily suggests subnanometer thin oxide films, so-called surface… CONTINUE READING
