Theory and experiments show that gold does not block hydrogen adsorption on iridium.
First-principles guided synthesis of highly active Ru@Pt nanoparticle catalysts for preferential oxidation (PROX) of CO in H2.
Bimetallic Near Surface Alloys that bind H weakly, but activate H2 more easily than noble metals. Niels Bohr and Paul Sabatier, founders of Quantum Mechanics and Catalysis.
Chemomechanical coupling: Surface strain plays a major role in determining the rate limiting step and catalytic activity of platinum for CO oxidation.
Highly dispersed Pt species decorated by alkali and O/OH species catalyze the water gas shift reaction at low temperatures.
Impurity amounts of water accelerate atomic hydrogen diffusion on iron oxide surfaces by 16 orders of magnitude at room temperature.
