Can basic chemistry concepts explain oxide surfaces?

By / February 25, 2010

Researchers at Northwestern University and the University of Oxford say that relatively simple methods of explaining chemical bond mechanisms typically taught at undergraduate levels turns out to be an accurate way to understand the arrangement of atoms on a oxide’s surface. “For a long time we have not understood oxide surfaces,” said Laurence Marks, professor…
