In this self-contained introduction to surface reactions, Ertl, professor emeritus at Fritz Haber Institute of the Max Planck Society, Germany, expands on ideas he first presented in his 2007 Baker Lectures at Cornell University. Accessible to professional chemists and students, the book explains how chemistry works at surfaces, and describes how to investigate the dynamics of surface reactions, comparing traditional surface probes with more modern ones. Chapters cover surface structure and reactivity, dynamics of molecule/surface interactions, electronic excitations and surface chemistry, and principles of heterogeneous catalysis, in addition to mechanisms of heterogeneous catalysis, oscillatory kinetics and nonlinear dynamics, and spatio-temporal self-organization in surface reactions. B&w images are included. The book can serve as a primary text for graduate students in introductory surface science or chemistry, as well as a resource for professionals in surface science, chemical engineering, or nanoscience. Ertl won the 2007 Nobel Prize in Chemistry for his studies of chemical processes on solid surfaces. Annotation ©2009 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
