Abstract

Abstract XPS analysis of the oxide layer formed on Pt electrodes in sulfuric acid has been performed. Thick layers grown within 15 h at 2.3 V are characterized as Pt(OH) 4 in accordance with literature data. Thinner layers obtained at potentials ⩽ 1.5 V consist of one surface species only, which also seems to be Pt(OH) 4 on the basis of difference spectra obtained.
