In this study, for the understandings of Cesium (Cs) adsorption behavior on structure materials in severe accidents at a light water nuclear reactor, the chemical state of Cs and its distribution on the surface of SUS304 stainless steel (SS) with different Si concentration were investigated by hard X-ray photoelectron spectroscopy (HAXPES) and scanning electron microscope / energy dispersive X-ray spectroscopy (SEM/EDX). As a result, it was found that Cs is selectively adsorbed at the site where Si distributes with high concentration. CsFeSiO$$_{4}$$ is a dominant Cs products in the case of low Si content, mainly formed, while Cs$$_{2}$$Si$$_{2}$$O$$_{5}$$ and Cs$$_{2}$$Si$$_{4}$$O$$_{9}$$ are formed in addition to CsFeSiO$$_{4}$$ in the case of high Si content. The chemical forms of the Cs compounds produced in the adsorption process on the SS surface has a close correlation with the concentration and chemical states of Si originally included in SS.
