Overview

This book is the first to give a comprehensive account of the fundamental properties of metal-oxide surfaces and their interaction with atoms, molecules and overlayers. The surfaces of metal oxides play a crucial role in an extremely wide range of phenomena, including the environmental degradation of high-Tc superconductors and catalysis. They are also increasingly important in processes such as the passivation of metal surfaces and gas sensing for pollution monitoring and control. As well as giving a general overview of the properties of metal-oxides, an extensive and thorough compilation of the research that has been performed on well characterised oxide surfaces is provided, thus making the book suitable for those graduate students and established researchers in materials science, chemistry or physics who have an interest in metal-oxide surfaces.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"...the authors' excursion into the bulk electronic structure of metal oxides that precedes the discussion of surface electronic structure is both refreshing and enlightening...The close to 1000 references are mostly organized in tables, saving the reader from being swamped in details and facilitating digging into the original literature if needed. The authors also say what is not known about metal oxide surfaces—information that is often almost as valuable as what is known....will be a useful resource for physicists, chemists, and materials scientists...It certainly has a prominent place on my bookshelf, and I highly recommend it for anyone writing a paper, thesis or proposal on metal oxide surfaces." Ulrike Diebold, Physics Today
