State-selected gas/surface reaction: methane dissociation on platinum surface
First step in improvement and development of catalysts is understanding of reaction process. The detailed experimental study serves as stringent test for the development of a predictive understanding of industrially important gas/surface reactions using first principles theory. I aim to gain knowledge beneficial in fully understating grealh systems from the state-selected molecular beam study of gas/surface reactions. In my talk, I will present results of state-selected gas/surface reaction: methane dissociation on platinum surface.
