The relation between substrate, Sm alloy, and surface sensitivity of ceria (111)- and (100)-oriented nano-islands on Ru(0001) and Cu(111). — •Raquel Sanchez-Barquilla, Rudi Tschammer, Lars Buss, Carlos Morales, and Jan Ingo Flege — Applied Physics and Semiconductor Spectroscopy, Brandenburg University of Technology Cottbus-Senftenberg, Germany

Inverse oxide/metal catalysis allows achieving better catalytic performance than its traditional counterpart. For example, in cerium-based inverse catalyst systems, the Ce3+ states have been shown to be the active sites for methanol synthesis. This suggests that the activity can be enhanced by promoting those through alloying with trivalent, catalytically active rare-earth metals, as, e.g. Sm. We present low-energy and X-ray photoemission electron microscopy (LEEM/XPEEM), investigations that show how epitaxially grown (100)- and (111)-oriented CeO2 islands may be modified and/or alloyed by post-deposited metallic Sm. For the Ce1−xSmxO2−δ/Ru(0001) system, the CeO2 (111)-oriented islands undergo a structural change, concomitant with a partial conversion from Ce4+ to Ce3+. Surprisingly, for Ce1−xSmxO2−δ/Cu(111) the result is found to be face-dependent since only (100)-oriented CeOx islands were reduced whereas the (111)-oriented islands remained unaltered. Both systems have been exposed to reducing (H2) and oxidizing (CO2) conditions, resulting in higher reduction and in a complete recovery of the Ce4+ states, respectively. These unexpected results indicate a complex interaction not only between cerium and the doping element, but also an intricate interplay with the metallic substrate.
