Ethanol conversion on Pt and Pt-Sn alloys: Surface reactions and intermediates

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingConference contribution


Adsorption and reaction of several C2-organic molecules, such as ethanol, acetaldehyde, and ethylene oxide, and reactive intermediates such as surface-bound ethoxy and ethyl groups on a Pt(111) single-crystal surface and two, ordered Sn/Pt(111) surface alloys were studied. The use of more than one Pt-Sn alloy probed how local surface structure and composition governs reactivity and selectivity of such alloys. This is an abstract of a paper presented at the 2006 AIChE National Meeting (San Francisco, CA 11/12-17/2006).
