Surface Electrochemistry

Single crystal surfaces prepared and characterised using LEED, XPS, LEIS and TPD in UHV are transferred directly to the electrochemical environment under potential control. This allows a systematic (ex-situ) investigation of the effect of surface structure and composition on electrochemical reactions such as CO, methanol, formic acid and H2 oxidation, and oxygen and nitrate reduction. Surfaces have included platinum and non-platinum surface alloys. In-situ electrochemical STM has been applied to the study of UPD layers on single crystal surfaces.
