The so-called electrophilic oxygen’, characterized in XPS by an O 1s energy of 530.7 eV, is considered to be responsible for the Ag-catalyzed epoxidation of ethylene, a large-scale industrial process. The chemical nature of this oxygen species has remained unclear, but is certainly different from the known oxygen-induced reconstructions on the silver surface. A (7x√3)rect phase on Ag(111) incorporates this oxygen species, but all attempts to find a structure model have failed for a long time. Recent DFT calculations revealed that only covalently bound oxygen species exhibit O 1s energies in this region, which led to the consideration of oxygen bound to sulfur, a common contamination in ethylene. Based on a model proposed by DFT we have now solved the structure by a LEED I(V) analysis. The structure involves a reconstruction consisting of alternating rows of Ag triangles and SO4 units along the √3 direction of Ag(111). The Ag atoms are found in three different geometries, on hcp, fcc, and bridge position. The findings shed new light on the already complex Ag/O system.
