Göttinger researchers have elucidated why Hydrogen atoms adsorb to metals

The Göttingen researchers Oliver Bünermann and Alec Wodtke of the MPI for Biophysical Chemistry and the University of Göttingen have made a big step forward in understanding chemical reactions at surfaces in detail. Their findings could, in future, help to further improve catalytic processes such as emission control and to identify new catalytic materials (press release). The work was recently published in Science, DOI: 10.1126/science.aad4972.
