This is a preliminary report on the application of electron emission microscopy in the study of the chemisorption of gases on tungsten. Particular attention is being devoted to two systems: 1. hydrogen, oxygen and water, and 2. carbon monoxide, oxygen and carbon dioxide. The technique is to study the F. E. M. patterns resulting from one substance alone and then those from two gases together, looking particulary for evidence of chemical reactions. In addition, the reaction of oxygen and carbon dioxide with carbon-coated tips is being examined.
