Interaction of Atomic Deuterium with Rutile TiO2(011)-(2×1)
|Corresponding Author||Wang，Tianjun; Zhou，Chuanyao|
Inspired by the significance of hydrogen-solid interaction in hydrogen energy and catalysis, adsorption, diffusion, and desorption behaviors of deuterium atoms in rutile TiO(011) have been investigated by temperature-programmed desorption (TPD) and ultraviolet photoelectron spectroscopy (UPS). Upon exposure, a small portion of D atoms adsorb at surface oxygen sites, resulting in the band gap states at 1.35 eV below the Fermi level and desorbing as water at ∼400 K. Most of the D atoms will diffuse into the bulk due to the relatively low activation barrier and the huge capacity of the solid material. These bulk D species desorb as D/HD between 500 and 800 K. While the desorbing DO from surface hydroxyls saturates at ∼0.10 monolayer (ML), the yielding D is about 96 ML (equivalent coverage) at the largest atomic D exposure of 4.54 langmuir and no saturation trend has been observed in the present work. Detailed analysis indicates the bulk D will diffuse back to the surface and recombine as D at elevated temperatures. The differences between the behavior of H(D) in rutile TiO(110) and TiO(011) have been discussed by considering the presence of additional bridging oxygen atoms between the in-plane and topmost ones on the latter surface. The striking finding that most surface D atoms diffuse into the bulk of rutile TiO(011) will not only broaden our understanding of the interaction of H/D with the prototypical metal oxide material but also provide clues to investigate the mechanism of H/D involving reactions over TiO catalysts, for example, hydrogen evolution and hydrogenation.
