Abstract

Combining scanning tunneling microscopy, molecular beam methods, and time-resolved infrared reflection absorption spectroscopy, we investigate the structure and reactivity of Pd nanoparticles supported on single-crystal-based model NOx storage materials. The latter consist of barium aluminate-like nanoparticles supported on an Al2O3 film on a NiAl(110) substrate. On these surfaces, Pd deposition under ultra-high-vacuum conditions gives rise to the growth of three-dimensional Pd particles, nucleating at the predeposited barium aluminate aggregates. The reactivity of these systems toward NO2 is tested systematically as a function of NO2 exposure and Pd particle size. At room temperature, NOx generated by dissociative adsorption of NO2, sequentially covers the following sites on the Pd nanoparticles: (i) hollow sites on (111) facets, (ii) bridge sites at particles edges and particle defects, and, finally, (iii) on-top sites at particle corners. The occupation of different sites on the particles is monitored as a function of NO2 exposure and Pd particle size. Characteristic differences in the site occupation and the coverage dependence are observed as a function of particle size. At elevated NO2 exposures, all NO-related features disappear, indicating the onset of oxidation of the Pd particles. For the Pd-containing systems, several new vibrational bands are observed. These new features are assigned to surface nitrates adsorbed on oxidized Pd particles and, tentatively, to surface nitrates adsorbed on sites that arise from the interaction between barium aluminate and oxidized Pd particles. In the limit of high NO2 exposure, these new surface nitrates coexist with surface nitrates formed on the uncovered fraction of the barium aluminate nanoparticles.
