I knew not anything of the paintings of C. G. Vayenas on NEMCA till the early nineties. Then I discovered from a paper of his inspiration (gas interface reactions can be catalyzed electrochemically), which appeared really extraordinary; yet i didn't know how it labored. for this reason, i made a decision to correspond with Professor Vayenas in Patras, Greece, to arrive a greater knowing of this idea. i feel that my early papers (1946, 1947, and 1957), at the dating among the paintings functionality of steel surfaces and electron move reactions thereat to debris in resolution, held me in strong stead to be receptive to what Vayenas instructed me. because the electrode strength alterations, so in fact, does the paintings functionality on the interface, and fuel steel reactions there contain adsorbed debris that have bonding to the outside. even if electron move is entire in the sort of case, or even if the impression is at the desorption of radicals, the paintings functionality determines the energy in their bonding, and if one varies the paintings functionality by means of various the electrode capability, you'll range the response cost on the interface. I received the assumption. After that, it's been delicate crusing. Dr. Vayenas wrote a seminal article in glossy points of Electrochemistry, quantity 29, and taken the sphere into the general public eye. It has due to the fact that grown and its usefulness in chemical catalytic reactions has been established and proven all over the world.
