Abstract : The second project is aimed at developing an understanding of glassy materials which conduct electricity by the movement of protons through structure. The long range objective of the third research program is to modify the distribution of oxidation states which are stable at the surface of a metal oxide catalyst by controlling the dispersion of the catalyst on its inert support. Preliminary kinetic studies of the oxidation of carbon monoxide: A maximum rate exists at about 3% Cr. There seems to be little, if any, effect of the dispersion on activity at chromium contents less than one percent. (Modified author abstract)
