view of a catalyst’s surface structure


Palladium catalysts are used to oxidise carbon monoxide in vehicle exhausts. Richard van Rijn of the Interface Physics Group and colleagues from Sweden and France have studied the surface structure of a Pd model catalyst under realistic operation conditions. Their results show that several forms of highly reactive Pd oxide form on the catalyst’s surface. The work will be published as a cover article in PCCP. Read more (in English)
