O. P. Balaj, I. Balteanu, T. T. J. Roßteuscher, M. K. Beyer, and V. E. Bondybey. Catalytic Oxidation of CO with N2O on Gas Phase Platinum Clusters. Angew. Chem. Int. Ed. , 43, pp. 6519-6522, 2004.

Abstract: Herein we report the observation of the full catalytic cycle of CO oxidation with N2O on cationic platinum clusters for Ptn+, n=6-8, in the gas phase studied by Fourier-transform ion cyclotron resonance (FT-ICR) mass spectrometry. Platinum is the key catalytic metal for a variety of industrial and environmental applications, for example, it catalyzes the oxidation of CO with O2 in catalytic converters. This reaction has been studied in detail on surfaces.

Keywords: catalyst poisoning, cluster compounds, gas-phase reactions, heterogeneous catalysis, platinum
