Carbon monoxide activation and poisoning on metallic and enzymatic sites: a new ATR-IR spectroelectrochemical approach

Abstract:

Direct liquid fuel cells (DLFCs) offer a great opportunity to replace traditional fuel combustion with cleaner localised energy production. One of the biggest challenges for developing a commercial DLFC device is the production of CO during fuel oxidation. CO is not only one of the most common intermediates of hydrocarbon fuels oxidation but also a poison of most metal catalysts. In situ infrared (IR) spectroelectrochemical (SEC) techniques have been intensively used to understan...
