Carbon-supported platinum (Pt) nanoparticles have been studied intensively for applications to oxygen reduction reaction (ORR) catalysts in polymer electrolyte fuel cells. The Pt nanoparticles on the Ar-ion-irradiated glassy carbon (GC) substrate were previously found to improve ORR activity. We analyzed here the local structure by XAFS measurements to clarify the mechanism of the Pt-C bonding at the Pt/GC interface, which could contribute to the observed high ORR activity. A decrease in the white-line intensity at Pt M$$_3$$ and L$$_3$$ edges suggests the reduction of the vacancy in the Pt 5d orbital, thereby leading to the interfacial structure with suppressed oxygen adsorbability.
