Self-promotion mechanism for CO electrooxidation on gold

Self-promotion mechanism for CO electrooxidation on gold
Self-promotion mechanism for CO electrooxidation on gold
CO electrooxidation on Au(111), Au(100) and Au(110) electrodes in 0.1 M HClO4 and 0.1 M NaOH solutions has been studied by means of voltammetric measurements with hanging meniscus rotating bead-type electrodes . It is found that the reaction order in CO concentration is close to unity at potentials close to the onset of CO oxidation , and then it becomes higher than unity at higher potentials for all studied surfaces except for Au(111) in 0.1 M HClO4. This behavior indicates that CO oxidation on gold takes place through a self-promotion mechanism, in which the presence of CO on the gold surface enhances the adsorption of its own oxidant. Specifically, this mechanism offers a plausible explanation for the higher catalytic activity in alkaline solutions, since CO adsorption is stronger under these conditions, and thus it can lead to a higher enhancement of the adsorption of the oxidant species

Abstract

CO electrooxidation on Au(111), Au(100) and Au(110) electrodes in 0.1 M HClO4 and 0.1 M NaOH solutions has been studied by means of voltammetric measurements with hanging meniscus rotating bead-type electrodes . It is found that the reaction order in CO concentration is close to unity at potentials close to the onset of CO oxidation , and then it becomes higher than unity at higher potentials for all studied surfaces except for Au(111) in 0.1 M HClO4. This behavior indicates that CO oxidation on gold takes place through a self-promotion mechanism, in which the presence of CO on the gold surface enhances the adsorption of its own oxidant. Specifically, this mechanism offers a plausible explanation for the higher catalytic activity in alkaline solutions, since CO adsorption is stronger under these conditions, and thus it can lead to a higher enhancement of the adsorption of the oxidant species
