Cover Picture: Molecular Factors of Catalytic Selectivity (Angew. Chem. Int. Ed. 48/2008)
In situ molecular-level studies of catalytic reactions with scanning tunneling microscopy (STM) and sum frequency generation (SFG) vibrational spectroscopy have revealed seven molecular components of selectivity—surface structure, adsorbate-induced restructuring, adsorbate mobility, reaction intermediates, surface composition, charge transport, and oxidation states—for heterogeneous catalysis on metal single-crystal model surfaces and nanoparticles. For details, see the Review by G. A. Somorjai and J. Y. Park on page 9212 ff.
