Subtle surface modifications can have profound effects on catalytic and electrocatalytic chemistry. Reflection- Absorption Infrared Spectroscopy (RAIRS) using synchrotron radiation is potentially a very powerful probe of the surface interactions involved provided that sufficiently high quality data can be obtained. The performance of the Daresbury RAIRS facility in its original configuration is illustrated with examples of complex adsorbate systems including trimethylamine adsorbed on Ni{111}, CO coadsorbed with potassium on Cu{110} and formate on Cu{100}. The factors that limited performance are highlighted, and the recent major reconstruction of the station to eliminate these is described.
