Abstract

By means of density functional theory computations, we examine the stability and CO oxidation activity of single Ru on CeO2(111), TiO2(110) and Al2O3(001) surfaces. The heterogeneous system Ru1/CeO2 has very high stability, as indicated by the strong binding energies and high diffusion barriers of a single Ru atom on the ceria support, while the Ru atom is rather mobile on TiO2(110) and Al2O3(001) surfaces and tends to form clusters, excluding these systems from having a high efficiency per Ru atom. The Ru1/CeO2 exhibits good catalytic activity for CO oxidation via the Langmuir–Hinshelwood mechanism, thus is a promising single-atom catalyst.
