Foreword This special issue of "Research on Chemical Intermediates" entitled "Trends in Surface Chemistry and Catalysis" is dedicated to Frank S. Stone, who recently retired from his professorship at the Department of Chemistry at the University of Bath. It represents the homage paid to Frank S. Stone by the catalysis community for his fundamental scientific contributions and for his acting as the sole European Editor of the "Journal of Catalysis" for over a quarter of a century (1970-1996) leading to the publication of 144 volumes! During all of his academic career, Frank S. Stone has been very active in the surface and solid state chemistry of oxides in relation to surface reactivity and catalysis phenomena. While the present issue of "Research on Chemical Intermediates" gathers contributions covering essentially the fields of surface and solid state chemistry of oxide systems, a forthcoming issue of"Topics in Catalysis" will be mainly focused on the reactivity and catalytic properties of such systems. It has been a real pleasure to serve as guest Editors of this special issue on the "Trends in Surface Chemistry and Catalysis". We would like to sincerely thank Professor M. Anpo, one of the Editors of the journal, who gave us his strong support, and all the people who responded so enthusiastically to our invitation.
