Abstract : Alkaline earth oxides of high surface area were thermally activated at 400-1100C. Super base properties and electron transfer sites were generated. These materials serve as catalysts for selective deuteration of hydrocarbons, alkene isomerization, CO telomerization and reduction, carbonyl compound condensation, and as a destructive adsorbent for organophosphorus compounds and other toxic substances. Some fundamental understanding of the reactive sites involved has been gained by studying adsorbed species and by metal ion doping. Studies of single metal oxide molecules in matrices has begun.
