Title: The Interaction of Carbon Monoxide with Rhodium on Potassium-Modified CeO 2(111)

The adsorption and reactions of CO adsorbed on Rh particles deposited on K-covered CeO 2(111) were studied by temperature programmed desorption and photoelectron spectroscopy. K deposited on CeO 2(111) forms a KO X over-layer by extracting O from the ceria and partially reducing some of the Ce 4+ to Ce 3+. CO does not adsorb on the KO X / CeO 2-X(111) surface in the absence of Rh particles. CO adsorbed on Rh / K / CeO 2(111) adsorbs molecularly on the Rh at 200 K. As the surface is heated the CO spills-over and reacts with the KOX to form carbonate. The carbonate decomposes at elevated temperature to produce CO and CO 2. The carbonate stabilizes the KO X so that K desorbs at a higher temperature than it would in the absence of CO. When the Rh and K deposition are reversed so that K is deposited on both the Rh and the CeO 2(111), CO adsorbs as CO 2- at 200 K. The CO 2- decomposes below 350 K to produce gas phase CO and adsorbed CO3 2- and CO. The CO is stabilized by the K on the Rh and desorbs above 540 K.
