DFT study of interaction of O, O-2, and OH with unreconstructed Pt(hkl) (h, k, l=0, 1) surfaces-similarities, differences, and universalities
MetadataShow full item record
Adsorption of O, O-2, and OH on Pt(111), Pt(100), and Pt(110) surfaces was studied using periodic DFT calculations. It was found that generally adsorbate-surface interaction strengths increase with the decrease in surface packing density. On the Pt(111) surface the dissociation of O-2 molecule was not predicted, but it was predicted on Pt(100) and Pt(110) surfaces. While the strength of the adsorbate-substrate interaction decreases with the rise in surface coverage by O atoms, in the case of OH adsorption adsorbate layer gets stabilized at higher surface coverage through the hydrogen bonding. In spite of all the mentioned differences, single parameter of surface electronic structure was identified, being useful for the explanation of the adsorption trends at different adsorption sites for O and OH adsorption on Pt surfaces of various crystallographic orientations and also provided a deeper understanding of atomic oxygen adsorption as a function of surface coverage.
