CO oxidation on metal surfaces is one of the most important
catalytic reactions due primarily to two reasons.1-3 Technologi-
cally, it is a very important reaction in car-exhaust emission
control, CO2 lasers, air purification, and sensors. Scientifically,
it is one of the simplest catalytic reactions and thus is widely
used as a model system to understand heterogeneous catalysis.
