About the Authors
  • 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.

    • First comprehensive treatment of this topic
    • Technologically important subject, e.g. high Tc superconductivity, catalysis etc.
    • Overlaps several different fields of study

    Reviews & endorsements

    ' … an extremely useful book which gives a competent and reliable survey of the field … The style of presentation, the instructive diagrams, and not least the outstandingly good treatment of the literature also make this a valuable resource for those engaged in related disciplines such as solid state physics, oxides chemistry, materials science and catalysis. Libraries are strongly recommended to buy it as a comprehensive monograph with a long life expectancy.' Angewandte Chemie

    'The subject covered by this excellent book is very much at the frontier of surface science. …The book represents by far the best means of getting acquainted with the field of oxide surface science. It is an invaluable reference source at a very reasonable price.' Chemistry in Britain
