Abstract

original image

Ein trendiger Vulkan: Am Beispiel der Synthese von HCN aus NH3 und CH4 wird gezeigt, wie Skalenbeziehungen für Zwischen- und Übergangszustände eine Grundlage für die Vorhersage von Trends in der heterogenen Katalyse liefern (siehe logarithmische Turnover-Frequenz, TOF). Die Trends umfassen dabei neben der Aktivität auch die Selektivität und den dominierenden Reaktionsmechanismus. Dieser Ansatz eignet sich für zahlreiche katalytische Systeme.
