UV−visible diffuse reflectance spectroscopy (UV−vis DRS) and the ethanol oxidation probe reaction were used to investigate the structure and function of binary transition metal oxide catalysts containing dispersed WOx and MoOx domains supported together on alumina. The efficacy of UV−vis DRS as a tool to identify segregated MoOx and WOx surface domains along with their growth into larger and interacting binary oxides is demonstrated for the first time. UV−vis absorption edge analysis of… CONTINUE READING
