      Abstract:

        A combined experimental and theoretical study shows that highly   oxidized iron clusters are able to readily effect the oxidation   of CO to CO, at ambient temperature. Calculated energy profiles   of the reaction demonstrate that the oxidation efficiency is   governed by the strength of oxygen binding to the iron atom.   Results for FeO3+/- are presented and reveal that cation clusters   are more efficient than the corresponding anion clusters at   effecting the oxidation reaction due to different oxygen bond   energies resulting from charge distribution.
