In situ observation of facet-dependent oxidation of graphene on platinum in an environmental TEM

http://pubs.rsc.org/en/Content/ArticleLanding/2015/CC/C4CC07838A

We performed a direct observation of a crystal facet-dependent oxidation of graphene layers on platinum nanocrystals at atomic resolution in an environmental transmission electron microscope. Combined with density functional theory calculations, our work provides a novel approach for the dynamical exploration of the facet-dependent reactions at the atomic level.
