Title: Selectivity of Synthesis Gas Conversion to C 2+ Oxygenates on fcc(111) Transition-Metal Surfaces

Abstract

Using a combined density functional theory and descriptor based microkinetic model approach, we predict production rate volcanos for higher oxygenate formation on (111) transition-metal surfaces. Despite their lower activity for CO conversion compared to stepped surfaces, (111) transition metal surfaces bring the potential for selectivity toward C 2+ oxygenates. As a result, the volcano plots can be used to rationalize and predict activity and selectivity trends for transition-metal-based catalysts.
