Abstract: We present the first structure determination by surface x-ray diffraction during the restructuring of a model catalyst under reaction conditions, i. e. , at high pressure and high temperature, and correlate the restructuring with a change in catalytic activity. We have analyzed the Pt(110) surface during CO oxidation at pressures up to 0. 5 bar and temperatures up to 625 K. Depending on the O2/CO pressure ratio, we find three well-defined structures: namely, (i) the bulk-terminated Pt(110) surface, (ii) a thin, commensurate oxide, and (iii) a thin, incommensurate oxide. The commensurate oxide only appears under reaction conditions, i. e. , when both O2 and CO are present and at sufficiently high temperatures. Density functional theory calculations indicate that the commensurate oxide is stabilized by carbonate ions (CO2−3). Both oxides have a substantially higher catalytic activity than the bulk-terminated Pt surface.
