Abstract

The influence of H2O on the adsorption behavior of NO or NO2 on a silver powder surface was studied by SERS and XPS at room temperature. Water vapor was found to be responsible for the adsorption of NO on the silver powder surface. When surface species such as Ag2O are present on the surface, some of the NO2 molecules are adsorbed on the surface species to produce NO-3, whereas NO molecules are adsorbed on a different site to produce NO-2.
