Abstract

Since the discovery by Davy in 1817 of catalytic oxidation on the surface of platinum there has been much discussion of the underlying reasons for the occurrence of heterogeneous catalysis. Early ideas of Liebig found little favour with Berzelius, Ostwald and others. The adsorption theory of Faraday became generally accepted, although alternative views were proposed over a long period. Langmuir put the concepts of Faraday into definite form, and his formulations and developments of them have been used up to the present.
