Chemical bonding and reactivity of transition metal surfaces

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapterAcademicpeer-review

Abstract

Quantum‐chemistry of chemisorption is discussed based on partial density of states and crystal orbital hamiltion population analyses of the eelectronic structures of chemical bonds. In a second part of the chapter activation of small molecules on transition metals is introduced. Emaphasis is on the analysis of transition states.
