Abstract : The adsorption of C2N2 on Pt(111) results in two desorption states (alpha, beta). The alpha state, T max = 368K, is due to the desorption of molecularly adsorbed C2N2. The beta state, T max = 780K, may be due to the recombination of adsorbed CN groups or the decomposition of an extended (CN)x polymer. Coadsorption of H2 and C2N2 results in a surface nitrene which decomposes to give back H2 and C2N2 at 430K. Decomposition of ethylenediamine results in the same species. Dehydrogenation of ethylene-diamine shows that the amine hydrogens are removed first in this process followed at 430K by the removal of the hydrogens from the carbons liberating C2N2 as the final product.
