Evidence for a surface reaction between H and CO adsorbed on polycrystalline Pt

Temperature programmed desorption (TPD) experiments have been performed after dosing an ion-sputtered and annealed polycrystalline Pt surface with CO and H2. The CO-dosing was done both sequentially and simultaneously. With increasing residence time on the surface, the H2-TPD spectra exhibit conversion of the original H2-like features to features similar to the CO-TPD peaks. This provides evidence for the formation of a CO/H surface species through a chemical reaction between adsorbed H and adsorbed CO. The reaction occurs more rapidly when the sample is dosed or held at elevated temperatures, indicating that the reaction is activated.
