Mechanisms and Rates of Reaction at Mineral-Water Interfaces from Atomic to Pore Scales: Blending Simulation, Theory and Experiment
March 08, 2013 — Quantitative prediction of mineral reaction rates in natural systems remains a daunting task, partly because the atomic-level reaction mechanisms that ultimately determine the net rates are poorly understood.
Molecular Beam Studies for Elucidating "Spillover" - Diffusion of Molecules Across Surface Interfaces
March 01, 2013 — Transport phenomena play an important role in the chemical kinetics of practical catalytic processes and other interfacial processes (geochemical, separations, energy storage, biological, etc.). In these systems, adsorbates can migrate from one surface to an adjacent surface, and this phenomenon is called “spillover”.
