Prof. Helmut Schwarz (TU Berlin, Germany)
Gas-phase studies on isolated, mass-selected reactants –be these atoms or clusters – provide an ideal arena for probing experimentally the energetics and kinetics of a chemical process in an unperturbed environment at a strictly molecular level without being obscured by difficult-to-control or poorly understand solvation, aggregation, counter ions and other effects. Thus, an opportunity is provided to explore inter alia the concept of single-atom catalysis or, more generally, to help identify the active part(s) of single-site catalysts directly.
