Abstract: Change and change again: Under catalytic conditions for NO/CO conversion, simultaneous time-resolved extended X-ray absorption fine structure spectroscopy and IR studies show that the rhodium atoms in 5?wt?% Rh/Al2O3 rapidly migrate between CO-covered Rh particles and mononuclear Rh–NO sites depending on the changing gas composition. At lower temperatures (473?K), there is interconversion between mononuclear Rh(CO)2 and Rh(NO) centers.
