Part of the Topics in Current Physics book series (TCPHY, volume 19)


This chapter is principally concerned with the surface properties of the transition metal oxides with cubic perovskite structure. The topics discussed include: five-and sixfold coordinated transition metal-ion clusters and the bonding of molecules to such clusters, the bulk and surface electronic structure of the d-band perovskites and the nature of molecular bonding to the solid surface including band effects, the character of oxygen adsorption and the role of oxygen vacancies. Throughout the chapter we have attempted to show relationships between the electronic structure and simple, but general, concepts of importance in chemisorption and catalysis.
