This thesis examines the fundamental surface structures and reactions involved in the direct electro-oxidation of carbonaceous fuels. We have accomplished this through an integrated approach that probes the electrocatalytic interface using particle characterization techniques, voltammetry, and nuclear magnetic resonance (NMR).I used a slightly higher H2 flowrate and purged the precursor at 200Ad C for longer times. ... If the H2 flowrate is too slow, when the reaction starts, you will see a short sharp decrease in the gas flowrate, which can result in back diffusion of wateranbsp;...
