Adsorption Sites on Pd (110): Bridge and On- Top CO
The adsorption of CO has received much attention because CO is a participant in important industrial process such as the Fischer-Tropsch synthesis and because it has proven to be relatively easy to examine experimentally. Adsorption of CO on Pd is of particular interest because of the use of noble metals, including Pd, in automobile exhaust catalysts to reduce pollution emissions. An understanding of catalytic reactions on metal surfaces requires a knowledge of the surface sites, their geometries and differing energies of interaction with adsorbates. Here our interest is in delineating these factors which cause one site to adsorb CO more tightly than another.
