In this year’s spring meeting of the Condensed Matter Section of the DPG (Dresden, March 19-24) Yujin entertained the assembled multitudes with his view of the electrochemical oxidation of gold and out theory collaborator Sergery Levchenko told the world about our view of why CH2 is stabilized at steps on the basal plane of Ruthenium. If you’re interested in gold oxidation stay tuned but if you’d like to know more about CH2 stabilization, well, you’re in luck. Harald’s paper on this very subject is available in Journal of Physical Chemistry C (or by e-mailing us for a reprint).
