Background to the Position:
The making and breaking of bonds involving hydrogen atoms at the surfaces of
materials plays a major role in nature. For example, the formation and activation of C-H,
N-H, and O-H bonds lies at the heart of heterogeneous catalysis and is no less
important to other disciplines such as electrochemistry and astrophysics, not to mention
the widely discussed "hydrogen economy" of the future. When dealing with hydrogen,
quantum nuclear effects - tunnelling and quantum delocalization - can be significant at
