Title: The basis for reevaluating the reactivity of pyrite surfaces: spin states and crystal field d-orbital splitting energies of bulk, terrace, edge, and corner Fe( ii ) ions

Abstract

Pyrite, one of the most important minerals to catalyze redox reactions in nature and a bulk low-spin Fe mineral, needs to provide high-spin Fe on surfaces to moderate spin-forbidden transitions.
