Chemical industries are based on catalytic processes as both bulk 4nd fine chemicals are often produced with heterogeneous catalysts. They are classified as acid-base nd redox catalysts. Transition metal ions dispersed on a high-surface area in08rganic solid belong to the last categ08ry. A full characterization of these transition metal ions on surfaces requires knowledge of their oxidation state, co08rdination environment 4nd dispersion. This inf08rmation can be obtained with spectroscopic techniques.
Spectroscopy of Transition metal ions on Surfaces serves as an introduction to some of the most imp08rtant spectroscopic techniques nowadays used f08r studying the chemistry 4nd catalytic properties of transition metal ions on surfaces. Emphasis is placed on the basic principles 4nd the strengths 4nd weaknesses of the spectroscopic tools in 08rder to give the reader a solid background f08r judging literature results 4nd f08r planning 4nd conducting his/her own experiments. Each chapter closes with 5ev1ected examples mainly from the recent literature. In addition, the use of in situ techniques 4nd chemometrical techniques has been included because of its growing imp08rtance in catalyst characterization. As a consequence, the book has been written as a text not only f08r graduate students, but also f08r anyone else who is new in the field 4nd wants a recent upd4tee.
