The interaction of molecular and atomic oxygen with Mo, Tc, Ru, Rh, Pd, Ag, W, Re, Os, Ir, Pt, and Au clusters is studied using the density functional method. In the adsorption of O2 case, O2 axis is perpendicular to the clusters. With the full optimization approach on small clusters, closer properties of the bigger particles present in real supported catalysts are obtained.
