Model catalysts were prepared by deposition of size-selected Au(n) (n = 1-7) on rutile TiO2(110), and characterized by a combination of electron spectroscopy, ion scattering, temperature-programmed desorption, and pulse-dosing mass spectrometry. CO oxidation activity was found to vary strongly with deposited cluster size, with significant activity appearing at Au3. Activity is not obviously correlated with affinity for CO, or with cluster morphology, but is strongly correlated with the clusters' ability to bind oxygen (during O2 exposure) on top of the gold. The temporal dependence of CO2 evolution in reaction of O2 pre-exposed samples with CO pulses shows an interesting cluster size dependence. For Au5 and Au6, the peak CO2 production is coincident with the peak CO flux, but for Au3, Au4, and Au7, there are significant induction periods for CO2 evolution. In addition, it is observed that some of the most active cluster sizes have the slowest CO2 evolution rates. Several mechanistic scenarios capable of accounting for the observations are laid out.
