Platinum XPS lines of a 6.3% Pt/SiO2 catalyst in oxidized and reduced states were studied. The observed line shapes can be attributed to line broadening due to electrostatic charging, the extent of which changed during oxidation-rediction cycles. The limits of the method in studying very disperse materials with low metal loading are pointed out.
