- Physisorption of deuterium molecules on small nickel clusters already saturated with chemisorbed deuterium atoms is identified. The principal evidence for physisorption is the appearance at reaction temperatures below 200 K of product species having more deuterium bound to them than the chemisorption maximum, and a lowering of cluster ionization potentials (IPs) for these species. It is argued that the IP lowering is a consequence of molecular physisorption, and that identification of the number of physisorption sites on cluster surfaces can be used to infer structural information.
