The surface composition of a Pd–Au alloy was determined using low energy ion scattering spectroscopy (LEISS). A stable surface composition was found between 700 and 1000K with substantial enrichment in Au compared to the bulk. Infrared reflection absorption spectroscopy (IRAS) and temperature programmed desorption (TPD) were used to investigate the surface adsorption sites and ensembles. The isolated...
