Team proves stretched surfaces make better catalysts

Abstract:
Writing the "frontispiece" of the June issue of Angewandte Chemie International Edition, Assistant Professor Manos Mavrikakis and graduate student Jeff Greeley in collaboration with colleagues in Germany provide the first atomic-scale evidence for enhanced catalytic reactivity at stretched surfaces. The team offers microscopic evidence showing that molecules tend to adsorb and break on metal surfaces in locations where individual metal atoms are further apart than others and they demonstrate that this behavior agrees with results.
