Abstract: Heterogeneous catalysis is very important for industrial applications and the environment. It is known that precious metals, such as Pd and Pt, can be good catalyst materials for various reactions. However, these metals are expensive and their catalytic action is not yet completely understood. In the search for better and cheaper materials, more fundamental knowledge is necessary. We use ultra-high vacuum techniques and well-ordered Pd and Pt single crystals to further investigate the oxygen dissociation process and the interaction of water with deuterated surfaces.
