Oxidation of D2 and CO on oxygen pre-exposed 200 nm thick Pd films, epitaxially grown on MgO(100), MgO(110) and MgO(111), has been investigated in the temperature range 100–300°C. Oxygen initial sticking coefficients have been determined to be close to 1 for the 100 and 110 films, and around 0.8 for the 111 film. The sticking coefficient and reactive sticking coefficient for CO oxidation on Pd/MgO(100) is also close to 1, and the maximum reactive sticking coefficient for hydrogen oxidation is determined to be around 0.9 at temperatures above 200°C. It is shown that the reactivities for the different surfaces vary strongly with surface and oxygen coverage, and the consequence of this for supported particle catalysts is pointed out.
