Abstract: T70.00353 : The coordination of Metal-Salen to diatomic molecules
Dan Liu, Zhantao Peng, Hao Zhu, Cen Yin, Kai Wu*
Thanks to the invention of scanning tunneling microscopy (STM) in 1980s, people are able to observe the single atoms and molecules. Up to date, the morphological and electronic properties of metal-salen have been systematically studied in surface science. However, their catalytic performances have not been fully explored. Therefore, this proposal focuses on the coordination of several metal-salen complexes to diatomic molecules (such as CO) as well as analyses of its morphological and electronic properties with STM and surface science techniques. Specifically, Metal-Salen as a surface model catalyst will be extensively explored to uncover its catalytic properties towards small molecules.
