Book Description

October 26, 2009 0470261013 978-0470261019 2
Expanding on the ideas first presented in Gerhard Ertl's acclaimed Baker Lectures at Cornell University, Reactions at Solid Surfaces comprises an authoritative, self-contained, book-length introduction to surface reactions for both professional chemists and students alike.

Outlining our present understanding of the fundamental processes underlying reactions at solid surfaces, the book provides the reader with a complete view of how chemistry works at surfaces, and how to understand and probe the dynamics of surface reactions.

Comparing traditional surface probes with more modern ones, and bringing together various disciplines in a cohesive manner, Gerhard Ertl's Reactions at Solid Surfaces serves well as a primary text for graduate students in introductory surface science or chemistry, as well as a self-teaching resource for professionals in surface science, chemical engineering, or nanoscience.

Editorial Reviews

Review

"The text is well written and easy to read, and the material is illustrated throughout with excellent figures that really bring the subject material alive." (Chemistry World, March 2010)

"[This book] can serve as a primary text for graduate students in introductory surface science or chemistry, as well as a resource for professionals in surface science, chemical engineering, or nanoscience." (Book News, December 2009)

From the Back Cover

How chemistry works at surfaces

Expanding on the ideas first presented in Gerhard Ertl's acclaimed Baker Lectures at Cornell University, Reactions at Solid Surfaces comprises an authoritative, self-contained, book-length introduction to surface reactions for both professional chemists and students alike.

Outlining our present understanding of the fundamental processes underlying reactions at solid surfaces, the book provides the reader with a complete view of how chemistry works at surfaces, and how to understand and probe the dynamics of surface reactions.

Starting from a broad view of surface reactivity and the basics, the book discusses:

  • Surface structure and reactivity

  • Dynamics of molecule/surface interactions

  • Electronic excitations and surface chemistry

  • Principles of heterogeneous catalysis

  • Mechanisms of heterogeneous catalysis

  • Oscillatory kinetics and nonlinear dynamics

  • Spatio-temporal self-organization in surface reactions

Comparing traditional surface probes with more modern ones, and bringing together various disciplines in a cohesive manner, Gerhard Ertl's Reactions at Solid Surfaces serves well as a primary text for graduate students in introductory surface science or chemistry, as well as a self-teaching resource for professionals in surface science, chemical engineering, or nanoscience.
