Abstract:

The adsorption of NH3 and H2O on Ru001 have been studied using the Electron Stimulated Desorption Ion Angular Distribution ESDIAD method, in conjunction with thermal desorption spectroscopy and LEED. The results suggest that chemisorbed NH3 and H2O are bonded to Ru via the N and O atoms, respectively, with H atoms pointed away from the surface. The utility of ESDIAD for determination of structures of adsorbed molecules is indicated.
