Our results on the effect of water during CO oxidation on gold are published in Science!

Effect of water on CO Oxidation
Graduate student Hieu Doan developed a comprehensive computational model for Au/TiO2 catalysts, which suggest a novel mechanism for CO oxidation in the presence of water. The work is a collaboration with Profs. Bert Chandler and Chris Pursell at Trinity University San Antonio. Gregory Mullen and Buddie Mullins have published a Perspective on the article, and it has been featured on several news sites:
