thumbnailNew information on binding gold particles over metal oxide surfaces
The strong binding of gold on electronically modified calcium oxide can now be understood in detail. In a computational study, researchers at the University of Jyvaskyla Nanoscience Center have shown how redox chemistry entirely determines the adsorption strength of gold on the modified oxide where one metal atom is replaced with molybdenum.
