Abstract

original image

Ein aktives Zentrum für die Katalyse der CO-Elektrooxidation wurde entworfen. Dies gelang durch Einführung von Cu (orangefarbene Kugeln im Schema) in Mengen von weniger als einer Monoschicht in einen Pt-Einkristall (graue Kugeln). Die elektrochemische Reaktivität der Oberfläche hing stark von der exakten Position der Cu-Atome ab.
