Influence of 111 nanofaceting on the dynamics of CO adsorption and oxidation over Au supported on CeO2 nanocubes: An operando DRIFT insight [link]Paper  doi  abstract   bibtex   
CO adsorption and further reaction with O2 on two Au/CeO2 model systems have been investigated by operando diffuse reflectance infrared Fourier transform spectroscopy (DRIFT) in order to unveil the active sites for CO oxidation. One of the ceria supports was constituted by crystallites depicting a nanocube shape bounded mostly by 100 planes, whilst the second one was consisted of nanocubes whose 110 surfaces were reconstructed into 111-nanofacets with a zig-zag shape. The deconvolution of the CO adsorption bands and a detailed analysis of the time-evolution of these bands were also carried out. These studies evidenced a fast adsorption of CO over Au° and then Auδ–CO bands appeared during exposure to CO, in parallel with the appearance of Ce3+ features. Such changes suggest that CO adsorption process starts on Au sites on the low coordinated sites of the surface of the Au nanoparticles and their transfer to the interface sites. By comparing the nanostructure of the two catalysts, the Auδ–CO species could be fruitfully related to CO adsorption on sites located at the Au||CeO2 perimeter. The sample containing gold nanoparticles dispersed over the 111-nanofaceted CeO2 nanocubes, which retained a higher amount of gold nanoparticles, depicts higher contribution of Auδ−−CO bands than the other Au catalyst in the DRIFT spectra. The dynamic DRIFT study clearly revealed that the CO species adsorbed on Auδ- sites were the most reactive ones in both gold supported systems for CO oxidation. This explains much higher TOF values observed on the catalyst prepared on the surface reconstructed support. A detailed analysis on the reactivity was performed by modulation excitation spectroscopy (MES). The presence of peroxide surface species (O2 2-) in nanofaceted 111 could lead to higher catalytic activity than that of gold on the non-reconstructed catalyst. © 2019
