How carbon monoxide interacts with the rutile titania surface?

Carbon monoxide (CO) and titanium dioxide (TiO2) are among the most studied probe molecules and metal oxide single crystalline supports in surface science, respectively. The variations in the adsorption infrared or ultraviolet-visible spectra of CO have been

Select the right atom to adjust atomic motions in transition metal dichalcogenides

Transition Metal Dichalcogenides (TMDs) are materials made from sheets of transition metal cations (Mo, W etc.) sandwiched between two sheets of chalcogen atoms (S, Se, Te); such atomic sandwiches are held together by weak forces (e.g. van
