Defects on surfaces

01 Mar 1988-Bulletin of Materials Science (Springer India)-Vol. 10, Iss: 1, pp 161-172
TL;DR: A brief review of various types of defects on surfaces and their role in surface reactions is presented in this article, with particular emphasis on defects like steps/kinks and additives (promoters and poison).

TL;DR: In this paper, a density functional theory study has been carried out to investigate the hydration kinetics of periclase (MgO) through the interaction between water and pericloase (0, 0, 1) and (1, 1, 1), 1) surfaces.

TL;DR: In this article, the results of a quantitative LEED study of the clean, reconstructed Pt(110)-(1 × 2) surface are described, in which experimental intensity-energy spectra for ten diffracted beams have been compared, by an γ-factor analysis, to intensity spectra calculated using a dynamic theory for various structural models.

TL;DR: In this paper, the authors review progress in determining and predicting the relationship between one surface property, composition, and certain externally controllable variables: overall composition, temperature, environment and physical form, and find that theoretical treatments of metal alloy surface composition now include essentially all significant physical effects and can predict values for most parameters of interest.
