Abstract

The dynamics of electrooxidation of adsorbed CO on Pt(111) microfacets was examined in CO-saturated 0.1 M HClO4 aqueous solutions by in situ time resolved second harmonic generation (SHG). Analysis of the temporal dependence of the intensity of the SHG signals recorded for experiments in which the potential was stepped to values high enough for adsorbed CO oxidation to ensue, was found to be consistent with the mean field theory model, yielding rate constants somewhat higher than those reported by Lebedeva et al. (N. P. Lebedeva, M. T. M. Koper, J. M. Feliu and R. A. v. Santen, J. Electroanal. Chem., 2002, 524–525, 242–251) in sulfuric acid solutions. The smaller rates observed by these authors may be ascribed to the presence of anions, i.e. in all likelihood bisulfate, which are capable of competing effectively for Pt sites thereby blocking formation of oxygenated species on the surface. Also discussed in this work are the virtues and limitations of in situ SHG for monitoring fast surface processes.
