The surface reaction of the adsorbed hydroxyl group OH(a) with Rh(CO)2(π-C3H5) delivered from the gas phase: OH (a) + Rh(CO)2(π-C3H5)(g) → O-Rh( CO )2(a) + C3H6(a/g) has been studied on Ni(110), Ni(100) and ZnO(1010) mainly by HREELS and TPRS. On Ni(110), p(2×1)-OH(a) was completely diminished by adsorption of Rh(CO)2(π-C3H5) below 300 K. C3H6 stayed on the surface after this reaction. On Zn(1010) OH(a) was deposited with surface defects indroduced by Ar ion bombardment. The same reaction occurred with OH(a) on ZnO(1010), but not completely on Ni(100) which was covered with oxide layers.
