The hydrogen sorption of carbon-supported platinum catalysts, studied by the potentiodynamic method, differs significantly from that of unsupported platinum. The difference depends on the preparation method and on the nature of the support. Possible explanations are suggested as (i) some kind of interaction between metal and support atoms during impregnation, (ii) high dispersity (amorphous structure) and (iii) hydrogen spillover onto the carbon support.
