Title: Fundamental Mechanisms of C-X bond Transformations on Complex Molten Surfaces

Abstract

Investigations of fundamental and applied catalysis science began in 1989 with surface science studies of single crystal surfaces and moved into work understanding and measuring direct electronic excitations from chemisorption on metals as "hot electrons", to studies of C-H bond activation on metals. Later studies of metal oxide catalysts led to greater understanding C-X bond activation and transformation on complex surfaces including liquids. In addition to an improved fundamental understanding of important industrial reactions, a primary outcome of this work funded by the U.S. taxpayers has been the large number of graduate and undergraduate students and post-docs who have been educated in catalysis science and engineering with support from this program.
