Local reactivity of O2 with Pt3 on Co3Pt and related backgrounds Academic Article uri icon

abstract

  • We study the local reactivity of molecular oxygen with bimetallic substrates of a platinum trimer island supported on nanotips of CoPt, Pt, Co, Ni, and Fe. Because of the reduced interatomic distances and varying interaction strengths with the substrates, the supported island interaction with oxygen can be tuned from stronger to weaker relative to the interaction of a freestanding island with oxygen despite that there is no well-behaved trend with the binding energy of the island to the substrates.
