Demonstrates the usefulness of the scanning tunnelling microscope (STM) in providing direct information about the microscopic mechanisms of catalytic reactions on surfaces. Study of oxidation of carbon monoxide on an oxygen-precovered rhodium (110) surface; STM images showing that reactivity is strongly influenced by oxygen-induced reconstructions of the surface.
