Model Chromia Surface Chemistry: C2 Alkyl Fragment Reactions and Probe Molecule Interactions
MetadataShow full item record
The interaction of water with nearly-stoichiometric Î±-Cr2O3 (001) and (102) surfaces is structure sensitive. Water is sensitive to the difference in coordination number of Cr surface cations between the two surfaces, and on the Î±-Cr2O3 (001) surface, water has also demonstrated sensitivity to the degree of surface Cr cation reduction (and/or reduced coordination). These observations allowed for the development of a surface treatment recipe for the nearly-stoichiometric (001) surface.
