Enhancing surface reactivity with a noble metal

Author affiliations

Abstract

Gold, the archetypal noble metal, is usually associated with an inhibition of surface reactivity by site blocking. In this paper however, we show that on Cu(100) surfaces a gold adlayer can actually increase the extent of reaction with the substrate.
