Abstract: Illuminating complexity: Time-resolved, microreactor-based, EDE/mass spectrometry (EDE=energy dispersive extended X-ray absorption fine structure) was used to probe the behaviour of both Rh and Pd components of alloyed nanoparticles during NO reduction by H2. The picture shows the NO conversion as a function of temperature. This surface enrichment in Pd is shown to curtail rapid oxidation of the Rh component by NO and leads to a promotion of NO reduction.
