The last ten years have seen dramatic developments in our understanding of the surface science of nanoparticles grown on solid surfaces. These developments are continuing apace, not least in our understanding of nanoparticle structures at the atomic scale. Well-defined materials can now be prepared and the detailed nature of reactions at the atomic and molecular scale are emerging. Ensemble-averaging techniques are being combined with local, atomically-resolving probes such as STM, exposing such materials to scientific understanding, especially regarding local morphology and its effect on reactivity and catalysis. Current developments include in-situ measurements of catalytic reactivity at high pressure and temperature.
We look forward to welcoming you to Berlin for this Faraday Discussion.
Because this is a fast evolving area of science a Faraday Discussion will make an excellent forum for discussion of the developments and points of controversy which inevitably develop within such a field.
We cordially invite researchers in these fields to take part in the Discussion and join the chosen speakers who are among the key scientists behind the recent renaissance of interest in ion specific effects.
- Novel chemical methods for anchored nanoparticle fabrication
- The surface science of anchored nanoparticles
- CO-oxidation on nanoparticles studied in-situ
- Theoretical aspects of anchored nanoparticle structure/reactivity
