The search for the ways of thermal stabilization of supported metal catalysts is an important challenge in the modern catalysis. Chemical modification of support seems to be the most versatile approach to stabilize the metal particles against sintering and alter their catalytic performance. Also for such modification nitrogen doping can be used and is considered rather perspective. In a recent manuscript (A.M. Dmitrachkov, R.I. Kvon, A.V. Nartova, N-doping of alumina thin film support to improve the thermal stability of catalysts: preparation and investigation, Appl. Surf. Sci.) we have developed the procedure of N-doping of alumina thin film grown at the surface of metal substrate. Proposed N-doped model alumina support is suitable for catalysis – oriented surface science studies and improves the resistance of supported metal particles against thermal driven sintering. Herein, we provide useful complementary data for the characterization of the prepared materials in the form of: in situ / ex situ XPS (X-ray photoelectron spectroscopy) spectra at every stage of sample preparation, including angle resolved XPS experiments and thermal stability tests; STM (scanning tunneling microscopy) images of supported gold catalysts. Presented data support the proposed mechanism of film formation and modification.
