Abstract

This paper makes an extensive comparison of a dynamical model for a mechanism of direct dissociation to the detailed molecular beam experiments of CH4 dissociation on a Ni(100) surface reported in the previous paper. When a PES incorporating an ``exit channel'' barrier is used in the model and steric (multidimensional) aspects are included approximately via a ``hole'' approximation, excellent agreement is achieved between the model and experiments. This strengthens the qualitative mechanistic conclusions of Holmblad, Wambach, and Chorkendorff [J. Chem. Phys. 102, 8255 (1995)]. ©1995 American Institute of Physics.
