Abstract: High-energy-resolution fluorescence detection (HERFD) X-ray spectroscopy is presented as a new tool for the identification of the bonding sites of reactants in supported metal catalysts. The type of adsorption site of CO on an alumina-supported platinum catalyst and the orbitals involved in the bonding are identified. Because X-ray absorption spectroscopy (XAS) is element-specific and can be used under high pressures and temperatures, in situ HERFD XAS can be applied to a swathe of catalytic systems, including alloys.
