Topic: Single-site Catalysts by Metal-ligand Complexation at Surfaces: From Model Systems in Vacuum to High-pressure Catalysis on Oxide Supports

Time: 10:00 AM, June. 28th (Friday)

Location: Conference Room B, BLDG 909-1F


A grand challenge in heterogeneous catalysis is to achieve high levels of selectivity by controlling the chemical uniformity of metal catalyst sites at surfaces. Our group is working to develop a better understanding of fundamental aspects of self-assembly and organic film growth at surfaces [1] and to apply principles of on-surface metal-organic redox assembly to develop a new approach to this problem. Metal-organic coordination networks at surfaces hold promise for selective chemical function, but there is a limited understanding of the chemical reactivity of these systems. We tested chemical activity of vanadium single-site complexes that are stabilized by tetrazine-based ligands. We demonstrate activity toward dioxygen activation and a high degree of selectivity compared to vanadium nanoparticles. Reaction with O2 causes an increase in V oxidation state from VII to VIV, resulting in a single strongly bonded V-oxo product and spillover of O to the Au surface [2]. The metal centers are stabilized in extended, ordered metal-organic complexes that self-assemble through an on-surface redox process on the Au(100) surface and are characterized by X-ray photoelectron spectroscopy, scanning tunneling microscopy, high-resolution electron energy loss spectroscopy, and density functional theory. New results extend these chemical studies to more complex systems that include bimetallic sites [3] and redox isomer systems [4], which will also be highlighted in this presentation.
