The study of chemical reactions in confined spaces has recently become more attractive. Silica double layers are particularly suitable for such studies. They are bound to metal substrate surfaces only by dispersion forces. This creates a gap in which chemical reactions can be observed and compared with the same reactions without confinement. Our group at the Fritz Haber Institute has followed the reaction of oxygen atoms adsorbed on Ru(0001) with molecular hydrogen using low-energy electron microscopy. .
