Abstract

Abstract The reaction of hydrogen azide, HN 3, with bare and hydrogenated diamond (100) was studied using high resolution electron energy loss spectroscopy (HREELS). Hydrogen azide adsorbs molecularly on the hydrogenated diamond surface at 100 K and desorbs without reacting at < 273 K. In contrast, HN 3 reacts with C(100) at 100 K by breaking the NH bond to form CN 3 and CH surface species. The breaking of the NH bond is in contrast to the reaction mechanism of HN 3 on Si and Ge surfaces in which breaking of the HNNN bond is observed. We suggest that the stronger bonding of hydrogen to the diamond surface is responsible.
