|Title:||Hydrogen adsorption on sulfur and nitrogen covered Ru(001) surfaces||Authors:||Huang, H.H.
|Issue Date:||10-Nov-1994||Citation:||Huang, H.H.,Seet, C.S.,Xu, G.Q.,Hrbek, J.A. (1994-11-10). Hydrogen adsorption on sulfur and nitrogen covered Ru(001) surfaces. Surface Science 319 (3) : 344-352. ScholarBank@NUS Repository.||Abstract:||Hydrogen adsorption on nitrogen- and sulfur-modified Ru(001) surfaces was investigated using X-ray and ultra-violet photoelectron spectroscopies (XPS and UPS), low-energy electron diffraction (LEED) and thermal desorption spectroscopy (TDS). On a S-covered Ru(001), two thermal desorption peaks of hydrogen at 135 and 265 K were clearly observed at sulfur coverages > 0.1, at which p(2 × 2)-S islands start to form. The intensities of these two peaks increase with θS up to 0.21, and then decrease rapidly at higher sulfur coverages. At θS = 0.33, corresponding to a complete ( 3 × 3)R30° LEED pattern, hydrogen adsorption was fully suppressed. Compared with hydrogen desorption from H2S decomposition on Ru(001), it was concluded that the hydrogen desorption peak at 135 K is correlated with the formation of p(2 × 2)-S unit cells. Our experiments further demonstrate that preadsorbed N-atoms also inhibit the adsorption of hydrogen with each N-adatom blocking four hydrogen adsorption sites. © 1994.||Source Title:||Surface Science||URI:||http://scholarbank.nus.edu.sg/handle/10635/93978||ISSN:||00396028|
