The reactivity of adsorbed Na atoms probed by coadsorbed CH3OH
1984 (English)In: Surface Science, ISSN 0039-6028, E-ISSN 1879-2758, Vol. 146, no 1, p. 43-60Article in journal (Refereed) Published
Abstract [en]

The chemical properties of sodium atoms adsorbed on a Cu(111) surface have been probed by coadsorbed methanol. Methoxide, stoichiometrically close to CH3ONa2, is identified as a product by photoemission spectroscopy. Sodium atoms are found to react in the same manner at all submonolayer coverages, i.e. independent of atomic charge. Films of closely packed Na atoms - the first sp-metal substrate probed by methanol - are slightly less reactive. Hartree-Fock-Slater cluster calculations as well as observed energy shifts of a Cu electronic surface state indicate a transfer of charge from the copper substrate to the methoxide group. The desorption temperature for a monolayer of methanol molecules from a Cu(111) surface is enhanced by the presence of low sodium concentrations (1/20 of a monolayer). CH3OH is found to adsorb associatively on the uncovered Cu(111) surface.
