Research Data from Russian Academy of Science Update Understanding of Electrochemical Research [CO Oxidation on Pt(100): New Insights based on Combined Voltammetric, Microscopic and Spectroscopic Experiments]

By a News Reporter-Staff News Editor at Electronics Newsweekly -- Current study results on Electrochemical Research have been published. According to news reporting out of Moscow, Russia, by VerticalNews editors, research stated, "We present an experimental study of the CO electro-oxidation on Pt(100)-(1 x 1) electrodes employing electrochemical methods in combination with in situ scanning tunneling microscopy (STM) and shell-isolated nanoparticle enhanced Raman spectroscopy (SHINERS). We discussed the nature and stability of the active sites in the preignition region in the presence of dissolved CO (COb) and monitored substrate structure changes during the COb electro-oxidation process."

Our news journalists obtained a quote from the research from the Russian Academy of Science, "We corroborated that the electro-oxidation kinetics is determined decisively by the history of CO adlayer formation. A new mechanism was proposed for Pt(100) electrode deactivation in the preignition region after excursion of electrode potential to COb ignition region."

According to the news editors, the research concluded: "We believe that this mechanism takes place on Pt surfaces independently on their crystallographic orientation."
