First principles study of oxygen adsorption and dissociation on the Pd/Au surface alloys.
Summary of "First principles study of oxygen adsorption and dissociation on the Pd/Au surface alloys."
The formation of Pd/Au surfaces and their catalytic performance toward oxygen dissociation were investigated using periodic density functional methods. We show that Pd can readily incorporate into the second layer of Au(100) and Au(111) substrates with the assistance of Au vacancies. Pd/Au(100) exhibits better catalytic activity toward oxygen dissociation than Pd/Au(111). Specifically, the sub-layer Pd atoms of Pd/Au(100) can promote the oxygen dissociation and stabilize the surface structure after adsorbing oxygen atoms. On the contrary, the sub-layer Pd atoms of Pd/Au(111) slightly hinder the oxygen dissociation.

Metal Ceramic Alloys
The fusion of ceramics (porcelain) to an alloy of two or more metals for use in restorative and prosthodontic dentistry. Examples of metal alloys employed include cobalt-chromium, gold-palladium, gold-platinum-palladium, and nickel-based alloys.
Alloys that contain a high percentage of gold. They are used in restorative or prosthetic dentistry.
Guanine Nucleotide Dissociation Inhibitors
Protein factors that inhibit the dissociation of GDP from GTP-BINDING PROTEINS.
Specific alloys not less than 85% chromium and nickel or cobalt, with traces of either nickel or cobalt, molybdenum, and other substances. They are used in partial dentures, orthopedic implants, etc.
