The kinetics and mechanism of MgO dissolution
Reactions and atomic rearrangements at fluid-crystal interfaces play an important role in catalysis and in controlling the kinetics and mechanisms of dissolution. We have studied the attachment and reactions of water molecules at the MgO-water interface by combining measurements of 1H and 2D surface penetration and etch pit morphology with ab initio calculations. These studies show that the most common MgO cleavage surface, (001), is thermodynamically unstable when hydrated. Proton...[Show more]
