2_01/2010Cover Picture: Volcano Relation for the Deacon Process over Transition-Metal Oxides (ChemCatChem 1/2010)

The cover picture shows the activity volcano plot for the heterogeneous catalytic oxidation of HCl (the Deacon Process), where the turnover frequency is plotted against the reaction temperature and the dissociative oxygen binding energy. In their paper on page 98 ff., Bligaard et al. establish an activity relationship for the Deacon process over rutile transition metal oxides by combining density functional calculations with microkinetic modeling. RuO2 is found to be the best catalyst among the investigated materials.
