Now updated-the current state of development of modern surfacescience
Since the publication of the first edition of this book,molecular surface chemistry and catalysis science have developedrapidly and expanded into fields where atomic scale and molecularinformation were previously not available. This revised edition ofIntroduction to Surface Chemistry and Catalysis reflectsthis increase of information in virtually every chapter. Itemphasizes the modern concepts of surface chemistry and catalysisuncovered by breakthroughs in molecular-level studies of surfacesover the past three decades while serving as a reference source fordata and concepts related to properties of surfaces andinterfaces.
The book opens with a brief history of the evolution of surfacechemistry and reviews the nature of various surfaces and interfacesencountered in everyday life. New research in two crucialareas-nanomaterials and polymer and biopolymer interfaces-isemphasized, while important applications in tribology andcatalysis, producing chemicals and fuels with high turnover andselectivity, are addressed. The basic concepts surrounding variousproperties of surfaces such as structure, thermodynamics, dynamics,electrical properties, and surface chemical bonds are presented.The techniques of atomic and molecular scale studies of surfacesare listed with references to up-to-date review papers. Foradvanced readers, this book covers recent developments in in-situsurface analysis such as high- pressure scanning tunnelingmicroscopy, ambient pressure X-ray photoelectron spectroscopy, andsum frequency generation vibrational spectroscopy (SFG). Tableslisting surface structures and data summarizing the kinetics ofcatalytic reactions over metal surfaces are also included.
New to this edition:A discussion of new physical and chemical properties ofnanoparticlesWays to utilize new surface science techniques to studyproperties of polymers, reaction intermediates, and mobility ofatoms and molecules at surfacesMolecular-level studies on the origin of the selectivity forseveral catalytic reactionsA microscopic understanding of mechanical properties ofsurfacesUpdated tables of experimental dataA new chapter on "soft" surfaces, polymers, andbiointerfaces

    Introduction to Surface Chemistry and Catalysis serves asa textbook for undergraduate and graduate students taking advancedcourses in physics, chemistry, engineering, and materials science,as well as researchers in surface science, catalysis science, andtheir applications.
