Abstract: The chemical and electronic properties of a series of Zn/S/Mo(110) and Co/S/Mo(110) systems have been investigated using photoemission, thermal desorption mass spectroscopy, and hydrogen (H2, O2, or D) chemisorption. Sulfur multilayers supported on Mo(110) are very reactive toward admetals like Zn and Co. The behavior of the Zn/S/Mo(110) and Co/S/Mo(110) systems indicates that Zn and Co promote Mo ↔ S interactions, inducing the formation of molybdenum sulfide films. The ZnMoS and CoMoS films were unreactive toward H2 or D2 under ultrahigh vacuum conditions. As gas-phase hydrogen atoms (D) impinged on the surfaces, gaseous hydrogen sulfide was formed. Thus, the slow step in the D2,gas + Ssolid → D2Sgas reaction is the dissociation of molecular hydrogen. A good correlation exists between trends seen in the hydrodesulfurization (HDS) activity of ZnMoS and CoMoS catalysts and trends found for the sulfidation of Mo and hydrogenation of S in ZnMoS and CoMoS films. The systems that contain Co show the larger HDS activity, the stronger metal ↔ metal interactions with a subsequent increase in the reactivity of Mo toward S-containing molecules, and the bigger tendency to create unsaturated Mo sites through the hydrogenation of Mo-bonded S atoms. © 1996 American Chemical Society.
