Abstract

The adsorption and reaction of ethanol over Pt{1 1 1} has been investigated by Fast XPS and TPD. Ethanol adsorbs molecularly at 100 K, with a saturation coverage of 0.44 ML giving rise to C 1s components with binding energies of 283.7 eV (CH3–) and 284.8 eV (–H2COH). Ethanol multilayers desorb above 150 K, while ∼60% of the monolayer desorbs intact above 200 K in competition with decomposition pathways. Reaction initially proceeds via progressive dehydrogenation to form a metastable acetyl intermediate with components at 283.5 eV (CH3–) and 285.2 eV (-C=O), which in turn undergoes decarbonylation above 250 K to chemisorbed CO and methyl groups. A significant fraction of the latter are hydrogenated above 270 K, desorbing as CH4, with the remainder further decomposing to liberate H2 and surface CHx moeities.
