Surface Science: Foundations of Catalysis and Nanoscience
Introduction: Supplemental Material
Surface science underpins much of the science behind heterogeneous
The purpose of these supplemental pages is to explore further some of
applications of surface science
as well as some of the web-based resources that exist. Hopefully you
find that this material
enhances the learning experience of my textbook as well as providing
the opportunity to delve
further into those topics that you find of interest.
A good place to start is to surf some of the sites of
involved in Catalysis and Nanoscience.
This is why I've created a page of useful
to societies involved in these areas.
For instance, you can find a very nice introduction to catalysis (both
from the Institute of
. Or you can learn about the
history of catalysis from the North American
Catalysis Society. You might also like to check out the very fine
Introduction to Heterogeneous Catalysis
site of Per Stoltze.
Or maybe you would like to
Explore the Nanoworld with the help of this U of Wisconsin-Madison
Oder nimm doch ein NanoReisen
auf Deutsch or in English. Learn how to
build your own scanning
tunneling microscope (STM) or just look at some cool
images provided by NASA
An introduction to
nanoscience from Prof. Vicki Colvin can be found here.
