Attractive adsorbate interactions lead to steady-state multiplicity and oscillations in surface catalytic reactions. However, surface phase splitting eliminates sustained reaction rate oscillations observed when uniform metastable phases persist. Application of gradient fluid theory to adsorbate interface allows the calculation of the nonuniform interphase profile and the associated line tension.
