A complete solution for CO poisoning of Pt catalysts requiries a design that entirely prevents CO adsorption On Pt :atoms. Here, we explore the CO adsorption sites and oxidation capability of 3d transition metal doped small magic clusters of Pt-4. Among Pt3M, only the: Pt3V freestanding cluster entirely eliminates the prospect of Pt poisoning by inverting the-adsorption site of CO to-V atom. The V d-band tenter lies closer to the Fermi level-than-that of Pt atoms, resulting. in a larger number of empty d-antib onding states, thereby making V comparatively more reactive toward `CO. The inversion of the CO adsorption site is also observed-for larger Pt V, clusters and becomes possible for PtnCOm, clusters for sizes larger than m + n = 12 atoms. Formation and removal of CO2 via the Langtnuir Hinshelwood mechanism occurs with low reaction barriers, exhibiting a high catalytic activity for the Pt (V/Co)(m), clusters. A maximum catalytic efficiency* attained for Pt41V14, which at room temperature gives a CO2 turnover frequency comparable to the conventional catalystS. The oxidation of CO becomes more favorable by the Mars van Krevelan mechanism for the cluster supported on vacancy prone Li-doped MgO(100). Our results present a rationale design of Pt poisoning free fuel cells and automobile exhaust catalysts, which can be entirely protected from CO poisoning and maintain lung term high catalytic efficiency.
