Structure de surface d'alliages et de composés intermétalliques in-Pd

Abstract : This study is part of an European research program that aims to the rational development of new catalytic materials with high activity and selectivity towards the steam reforming of methanol. The socio-economic impact of this reaction is considered very important because methanol is a major vector for the production of hydrogen energy in fuel cells via the reaction CH3OH + H2O -> CO2 + 3H2. The main goal of this thesis is the determination of the geometric/crystallographic and electronic structures of the surfaces of alloys and intermetallic compounds in the In-Pd system, a promising new system for the development of the next generation of catalysts. This basic knowledge is essential to understand the chemical reactivity of these intermetallics and their specificity in catalysis
