The formation of PdZnx alloy on Pd(1 0 0) and its characteristics were investigated by various methods, such as photoelectron, auger-electron, electron energy loss, thermal desorption spectroscopic methods and work-function measurement. The alloy was produced by the decomposition of diethyl zinc on Pd(1 0 0). The alloy surface reacts with O2 and ZnOx is formed. The reactivity of alloy to hydrogen is similar to that of K/Pd. The stability of adsorbed CO is lower than on clean Pd(1 0 0).
