Surface Chemistry. Basic Concepts and Techniques

  • ID: 4470385
  • Book
  • 350 Pages
  • John Wiley and Sons Ltd
1 of 3
This well–structured introduction to the main fundamental principles governing surface chemistry is unique in demonstrating how complex reactions can be explained by simplified model reactions.

The author combines an experimental and theoretical approach throughout, introducing the most important techniques and using case studies to illustrate how these are applied in practice to problems relevant for surface chemistry and model catalysis. Simple and more advanced problems are included after each case study to encourage readers to develop the central concepts and apply their newly acquired knowledge.

The result is an excellent overview for advanced and postgraduate students entering the field as well as for practitioners.
