Fabrication, Structure and Reactivity of Anchored Nanoparticles: Faraday Discussion 162


About this book

The last ten years have seen dramatic developments in our understanding of the surface science of nanoparticles grown on solid surfaces. These developments are continuing apace, not least in our understanding of nanoparticle structures at the atomic scale. Well-defined materials can now be prepared and the detailed nature of reactions at the atomic and molecular scale are emerging. Ensemble-averaging techniques are being combined with local, atomically-resolving probes such as STM, exposing such materials to scientific understanding, especially regarding local morphology and its effect on reactivity and catalysis. The book covers important aspects of these areas as well as outlining current developments including in-situ measurements of catalytic reactivity at high pressure and temperature.

Author information

Faraday Discussions documents a long-established series of Faraday Discussion meetings which provide a unique international forum for the exchange of views and newly acquired results in developing areas of physical chemistry, biophysical chemistry and chemical physics. The papers presented are published in the Faraday Discussion volume together with a record of the discussion contributions made at the meeting. Faraday Discussions therefore provide an important record of current international knowledge and views in the field concerned. The latest (2012) impact factor of Faraday Discussions is 3.82.
