WG3 Meeting

Prague, 8. – 9. May 2014

Math_Phys_Charles_Univ_Prague_largeThe WG3 meeting was held at the Faculty of Mathematics and Physics of the Charles University in Prague (Czech Republic). Vladimir Matolín and his crew hosted 45 participants form WG3 and international guests to specifically discuss structure-function relationships for reducible oxide catalytic systems. The special emphasis was on the detailed understanding of the properties and reactivity of metal nanoparticles dispersed on the oxide surface and their interaction with surface defects and surface structural features.
