In situ environmental TEM observation of two-stage shrinking of Cu2O islands on Cu(100) during methanol reduction

Author affiliations

Abstract

The structural dynamics of Cu catalyst regeneration from Cu2O under methanol is poorly understood. In situ Environmental TEM on Cu(100)-supported Cu2O islands reveals a transition from anisotropic to isotropic shrinking during reduction. Two-stage reduction is statistically supported and explained by preferential methanol reactivity on Cu2O nano-islands with DFT simulations.
