Research interests

Research Interests

Research in the David Lennon group involves surface chemistry and in particular applying a variety of spectroscopic techniques to probe the interaction of atoms and molecules on well-defined metal surfaces. Such substrates include supported metal catalysts as well as metal single crystals. An increased understanding of the structure and reactivity at surfaces is of fundamental importance in heterogeneous catalysis. Examples of current projects are (i) the development and optimisation of new supported metal catalysts for large scale industrial processes, (ii) spectroscopic investigations of heterogeneous catalyst systems and (iii) surface science experiments on metal single crystals. The majority of my work has industrial applications.
