Weakening the C – C bond: On the behavior of glyoxylic acid on Pt(111) and its vicinal surfaces
Adsorption and oxidation of glyoxylic acid (GA) on platinum single crystals were investigated by spectroelectrochemical techniques. Among basal planes, Pt(111) is taken as a model surface for reactivity studies in order to point out the Csingle bondC bond breaking. For a standard GA concentration (0...
