Linear relationship between activation energies and reaction energies for coverage-dependent dissociation reactions on rhodium surfaces.
Evidence of a relationship between activation energies and enthalpy changes of various dissociation reactions on transition metals has been reported recently. A reconsideration of density functional theory results for dissociation energies of oxygen and NO on different rhodium surfaces (low-index and stepped) and their dependencies on oxygen precoverage reveal that also here a linear Brønsted-Evans-Polanyi (BEP) relationship exists. The establishment of such a general concept would be of trem...Expand abstract
