Molecular adsorption at well-defined electrode surfaces: hydroquinone on Pd(111) studied by EC-STM.

Abstract

The interaction of hydroquinone (H2Q) with well-defined Pd(111) surfaces at preselected potentials in dilute H2SO4 has been studied by molecule-resolved electrochemical scanning tunneling microscopy (EC-STM). H2Q spontaneously undergoes oxidative chemisorption to benzoquinone (Q), which adopts a slightly tilted parallel orientation. Evidently, the surface… (More)
