Abstract:

The isosteric heats of adsorption of NO and O2 have been studied on epitaxially grown Pt111 using elastic helium scattering as the surface coverage probe. The measured isosteric heats for No and O2 are 21 and 26 kcalmole, respectively. The data also indicate a pre-exponential factor for NO desorption of less than 2 x 10 to the 7th power.
