Molecular adsorption and reactions under two-dimensional shells
Project Director: Dr. Apostol Nicoleta
This study will provide fundamental insight and the possibility to determine insertion sites and reaction pathways together with relevant parameters such as adsorption energy, energy barrier for reaction, and turnover frequency for these processes. Moreover, it will constitute a significant step in the technological advance towards using ultrathin carbon layers deposited on Pt films industrially, for applications involving CO depletion and/or conversion.
All the objectives specified in the project, related to stage 1 of this research project were carried out in accordance with the theme of the work program.
The study of CO insertion, oxidation and desorption from Pt(001) covered with Gr and CO reactions of interest for hydrogen and alkanes’ production.
