We have studied the adsorption and desorption of O2 on Pd(100) by supersonic molecular beam techniques and thermal desorption spectroscopy. Adsorption measurements on the bare surface confirm that O2 initially dissociates for all kinetic energies between 56 and 380 meV and surface temperatures between 100 and 600 K via a direct mechanism. At and below 150 K, continued adsorption leads to a combined O/O2 overlayer. Dissociation of molecularly bound O2 during a subsequent temperature ramp leads to unexpected high atomic oxygen coverages, which are also obtained at high incident energy and high surface temperature. At intermediate temperatures and energies, these high final coverages are not obtained. Our results show that kinetic energy of the gas phase reactant and reaction energy dissipated during O2 dissociation on the cold surface both enable activated nucleation of high-coverage surface structures. We suggest that excitation of local substrate phonons may play a crucial role in oxygen dissociation at any coverage.

We have determined the initial sticking probability of O2 on Pd(100) using the King and Wells method for various kinetic energies, surface temperatures, and incident angles. The data suggest two different mechanisms to sticking and dissociation. Dissociation proceeds mostly through a direct process with indirect dissociation contributing only at low kinetic energies. We suggest a dynamical precursor state to account for the indirect dissociation channel, while steering causes the high absolute reactivity. A comparison of our results to those previously obtained for Pd(111) and Pd(110) highlights how similar results for different surfaces are interpreted to suggest widely varying dynamics.
