THE NATURE OF THE SURFACE CHEMICAL-BOND - A COMPARISON BETWEEN THE MOLECULAR AND SOLID-STATE PICTURES
Artikel i vetenskaplig tidskrift, 1990
When an adsorbate interacts with a cluster, the chemisorption
energy and the reactivity are often found to oscillate
as a function of cluster size. This has been demonstrated
both in theoretical model calculations 1,2 and in cluster beam experiments.Since in many of the theoretical studies the cluster is used as a model for an infinite surface and the ultimate goal is to make predictions of reactivities on real metal surfaces, it is very important to understand the origin of these oscillations.
