A theory of chemisorption on metal surfaces relating easily accessible physical characteristics of constituent elements in alloys to their surface reactivity has been formulated. The model can be used to identify critical physical features that characterize optimal alloy for targeted catalytic transformations and propose how these features can be engineered.
