This research used temperature-programmed reaction spectroscopy (TPRS) in UHV to probe the chemistry of titania-modified, alumina-modified and oxygen-modified Ni surfaces. Formic acid decomposition was chosen as the probe reaction because the decomposition activation energy has been shown to be dependent on the support for support Ni crystallites, and because the activation energy and reaction mechanism have been shown to be dependent on the chemical state of the metal surface for Ni single crystals.
