Based on simple lattice models of catalytic carbon dioxide synthesis from oxygen and carbon monoxide, phase diagrams are investigated at temperature T=0 by incorporating the nearest-neighbor interactions on a catalyst surface. The main types of ground-state phase diagrams of two lattice models are classified describing the cases of clean surface and surface containing impurities. Nonuniform phases are obtained and the conditions of their existence dependent on the interaction parameters are established.

Key words: lattice-gas model, catalysis, oxidation, ground state, carbon monoxide, oxygen
