Number of outer electrons as descriptor for adsorption processes on transition metals and their oxides

Author affiliations

Abstract

The trends in adsorption energies of the intermediates of the oxygen reduction and evolution reactions on transition metals and their oxides are smoothly captured by the number of outer electrons. This unique descriptor permits the construction of predictive adsorption-energy grids and explains the existence of scaling relationships among these compounds.
