Center for Functional Nanomaterials Seminar

"Probing the Nanoscale Surface Chemistry, from UHV through Ambient to Liquid"

Presented by Peng Jiang, Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory

Monday, April 26, 2010, 10:00 am — Bldg 735, Conference Room A

The modern chemical industry uses heterogeneous catalysts in nearly all production lines. With the rapid growing demand for renewable and green energy, catalysts are attracting more and more attention for efficient and environmental benign chemical reactions. In this talk, I will present our recent advances in several model systems by means of different surface characterization methods, which can cover UHV, ambient and aqueous conditions. These studies will help bridge the pressure gap between UHV surface science studies and realistic conditions in heterogeneous catalysis.
