Fundamental mechanisms for photochem. at metal and semiconductor surfaces are discussed. Expts. probing these mechanism are presented discussed for mol. oxygen adsorbed on palladium(111). Isotope effects in photodesorption and photodissocn. are shown to provide insights into the excitation transfer mechanisms and the probability of nonquenching events. 37 Refs.
