Abstract: [Background] CO oxidation is a very important prototypical reaction in heterogeneous process. The reaction mechanism of Pt-group metals under ultrahigh vacuum (UHV) conditions was studied in detail, and unambiguous evidence of Langmuir-Hinshelwood kinetics was found. However, the reaction mechanism of the Pt(110) surface under high pressure conditions was still controversial.[Purpose] This study aims to clarify the reaction mechanism and active sites of CO oxidation on Pt(110).[Methods] The oxidation of CO on Pt(110) surface was studied under total pressures up to 100 Pa in different CO:O2 reaction mixtures. Surface species and composition of products were analyzed in situ by ambient pressure X-ray photoelectron spectroscopy (APXPS) and online gas analysis by mass spectra (MS).[Results] The process of CO oxidation on Pt(110) fell into three regimes:1) low active regime with CO poisoned Pt(110) surface and low CO2 formation rate; 2) highly active regime with ignition reaction on Pt(110) surface companied by a large amount of heat release; 3) mass transfer rate limited regime, excessive O-rich Pt(110) surface, the CO2 formation rate controlled by CO diffusion rate.[Conclusion] The active sites of CO oxidation reaction on Pt(110) surface are metallic Pt.
