The electrochemical properties of Ni(111)c(4×2)-CO surfaces prepared in ultrahigh vacuum (UHV) have been examined in 0.1 M KOH using a UHV electrochemistry transfer system. The results obtained indicate that the CO layer remains intact up to the moment of contact with the electrolyte and can be subsequently electrooxidized quantitatively to yield CO2 (e.g., mostly carbonate) as the product.
