Synergy with potential: Analysis of relevant mechanistic pathways by density functional theory, reveals the synergistic role of co-adsorbed CO and OH in promoting HCOOH electrooxidation on Pt(111). Kinetic models derived from these studies show the atomistic surface phenomena underlying the experimental CV observation in the potential range between 0.0 and 1.2 V (see picture).
