Abstract

The oxidation of NO was explored on a mixed Fe + Cr oxide surface using temperature-programmed desorption (TPD). NO desorbs from (Fe,Cr) 3O4(1 1 1) in two main peaks at 220 and 370 K, with a third minor peak at ∼315 K. O2 TPD shows similar behavior. The strongly and weakly bound molecules are due to adsorption at Fe2+ and Fe3+ sites, respectively, and the minor states are assigned to Cr3+ sites. No thermal decomposition was detected for adsorbed NO, whereas ∼10% of the adsorbed O2 dissociated at Fe2+ sites. NO reacts with preadsorbed O2 to produce surface nitrate, as confirmed by isotopic labeling, which decomposes in TPD at 425 K. Atomically adsorbed O does not react with NO. Fe3+ and Cr3+ sites do not appear to participate in NO oxidation. Irradiation of adsorbed NO or NO + O2 with 460 nm light results predominantly in photodesorption, which limits the extent of possible surface photoreactions. © 2014 Elsevier Inc.
