Shedding light on light-off: Photoemission electron microscopy, DFT, and microkinetic modeling were used to examine the local kinetics in the CO oxidation on individual grains of a polycrystalline sample. It is demonstrated that catalytic ignition (“light-off”) occurs easier on Pd(hkl) domains than on corresponding Pt(hkl) domains. The isothermal determination of kinetic transitions, commonly used in surface science, is fully consistent with the isobaric reactivity monitoring applied in technical catalysis.
