Critical Reviews in Surface Chemistry
Crit Rev Surf Chem
Published/Hosted by CRC Press.
In recent years, new preparative, surface analytical, and theoretical approaches have allowed rapid advances in the understanding of surface chemistry. Instrumentation has become available that can probe surfaces at the atomic and molecular level with varying degrees of spatial resolution, including X-ray photoelectron spectroscopy, Auger electron spectroscopy, ion scattering spectroscopy, secondary ion mass spectroscopy, low energy electron diffraction, scanning tunneling microscopy, atomic force microscopy, and thermal desorption spectroscopy, along with other techniques. Many new materials with unique and unusual surfaces are being prepared aided by the powerful surface analytical probes now available. In addition, chemical and analytical probes of surface features are becoming better understood, with new theoretical methods making important contributions. Active areas include the investigation of structure-sensitive catalytic reactions, acid-base reactions on acidic or basic surfaces, oxide surfaces, oxidation and corrosion, material surface studies, and surface electron transfer reactions. Critical Reviews in Surface Chemistry serves as a forum in which to tie these surface chemistry topics together. The peer-reviewed papers will find interest with physicists, materials scientists, industrial scientists, as well as chemical engineers and chemists. The objective is to offer a review journal with a broad interdisciplinary scope.
