Evidence for two different adsorption sites of CO on Pt(111) from infrared reflection spectroscopy
- 145 Downloads
The adsorption of CO on Pt(111) surfaces has been studied under clean conditions by a highly surface sensitive double-beam infrared reflection spectroscopy (IRS). In contrast to results of other authors two stretching vibrations of adsorbed CO rather than one are detected near 2100cm−1 and 1870cm−1. This is in agreement with recent findings in high-resolution electron energy loss spectroscopy (ELS). The results are discussed in terms of two adsorption sites: CO adsorbed in on-top positions and double coordinated on bridging sites, respectively. Furthermore, a precursor state and a preferential adsorption in islands at low coverage is taken into account.
