In situ study of the gas-phase electrolysis of water on platinum by NAP-XPS.


Chasing down the active state: Near-ambient-pressure X-ray photoelectron spectroscopy was used to study the surface of a Pt electrode during the oxygen evolution reaction (OER). A hydrated Pt metal phase with dissolved oxygen in the near-surface region is OER-active and considered to be the precursor of the analytically detected PtO2 , which is in fact the… (More)
