Theory of Surface States and Chemisorption

Let us start with an obvious and consequently trivial statement. The theoretical methods useful for an investigation of solid surfaces must be closely related to the methods used for a description of both molecules and crystals, due to the fact that the same natural laws determine electronic structures of a solid surface as well as of molecules and crystals. For the same reason, important observable properties of a crystal surface can be considered as a synthesis or compromise between the properties of a solid bulk and of a molecule. Besides the properties which are customarily named physical, the existence of characteristic chemical properties offers a foundation for the large extremely important field of technical chemistry known as heterogeneous catalysis.
