NOVARO, O.; PACHECO-SANCHEZ, J.H.  and  LUNA, H.. Multibody effects in intermolecular interactions and reaction pathways for catalytic processes. Part II the contributions of Sidonio Castillo. Rev. mex. fis. [online]. 2009, vol.55, n.5, pp.332-338. ISSN 0035-001X.

We here continue the review on the work of Octavio Novaro and collaborators in the important field of nonadditivity of intermolecular interactions and catalysis, with special interest in the work that Sidonio Castillo contributed to this effort before his demise. His early work with Polish coauthors on methane and ammonia trimers and with British coauthors on N3, P3, N4 and P4 are highlighted. Then our focus will shift mainly to his work on the activation of methane, silane and germane starting with his Ph.D. thesis under O. Novaro and ending in his last papers with the present authors which marked the end of his short but brilliant career.

Keywords : Theoretical catalysis; multibody effects; nonadditivity; Sidonio Castillo's; contributions.
