  • Au deposited on Ru(0001)-supported extended, continuous graphene moire forms large 2-D islands at room temperature that are several nanometers in diameter but only 0.55 nm in height, in the apparent absence of typical binding sites such as defects and adsorbates. These Au islands conform to the corrugation of the underlying graphene and display commensurate moire patterns. Several extended Au structure models on graphene/Ru(0001) are examined using density functional theory calculations. Close-packed Au overlayers are energetically more stable, but all interact weakly with the support. Preliminary tests found the Au islands/graphene/Ru(0001) surface to be active for CO oxidation at cryogenic temperature,more » which suggests that the Au itself is the locus of catalytic activity.« less

  • Copper/zinc oxide mixtures show strong synergistic effects when used together as catalysts, particularly in methanol synthesis and water-gas-shift reactions. The authors have employed semiempirical quantum-mechanical calculations (INDO) to study the electronic properties of ZnO, CuO, and CuO/sub 2/ clusters (less than or equal to 26 atoms), of Cu absorbed on or substituted in these ZnO clusters, and of CO chemisorbed on ZnO(0001) and Cu/ZnO clusters. The results are discussed in light of models previously proposed to explain the unique properties of Cu/ZnO catalysts, which often involve Cu/sup +/ impurities in (on) the ZnO lattice. They use mainly the calculated chargemore » on the Cu atom and its interaction with CO to address the electronic properties of Cu substituted in and adsorbed on ZnO clusters. Their results for neutral clusters indicate that, with respect to atomic charge, this Cu is quite similar in nature to the Cu atoms of bulk CuO or the Zn atoms of ZnO, where the metal has a formal oxidation state of +2. The Cu site in these ZnO clusters shows unique electron affinity properties, accepting a major fraction of the added electron density for anionic clusters. The mechanisms of CO chemisorptive bond formation on Cu(100), ZnO(0001), and Cu-doped ZnO are compared and contrasted based on the present results and those in the literature.« less
  • We report on the interface between graphene and 4H-SiC(0001) as investigated by scanning tunneling microscopy (STM) and low energy electron diffraction (LEED). It is characterized by the so-called (6{radical}(3)x6{radical}(3))R30 deg. reconstruction, whose structural properties are still controversially discussed but at the same time are crucial for the controlled growth of homogeneous high-quality large-terrace graphene surfaces. We discuss the role of three observed phases with periodicities (6{radical}(3)x6{radical}(3))R30 deg. (6x6), and (5x5). Their LEED intensity levels and spectra strongly depend on the surface preparation procedure applied. The graphitization process imprints distinct features in the STM images as well as in the LEEDmore » spectra. The latter have the potential for an easy and practicable determination of the number of graphene layers by means of LEED.« less
