Abstract:

The rate of adsorption of carbon monoxide by alumina has been measured in the temperature range 151-295C by measuring the decrease in pressure in a closed system as a function of time. Analysis of the results using the Elovich equation leads to the conclusion that two distinct adsorption processes occur. The effects of preadsorbed ammonia and water vapor and of reducing the surface with hydrogen and carbon monoxide suggest that surface hydroxyl groups and surface oxide ions are the most probable adsorption sites.
