In situ high energy resolution fluorescence detection X-ray absorption spectroscopy (HERFD-XAS) was used to systematically evaluate interactions of H$$_{2}$$O and O$$_{2}$$ adsorbed on Pt and Pt$$_{3}$$Co nanoparticle catalysts in different particle sizes. The systematic increase in oxidation due to adsorption of different species (H$$_{2}$$O adsorption $$<$$ O$$_{2}$$ adsorption $$<$$ O$$_{2}$$ + H$$_{2}$$O coadsorption) suggests that cooperative behavior between O$$_{2}$$ and H$$_{2}$$O adsorptions is responsible for the overpotential induced by hydrated species in fuel cells. From the alloying and particle size effects, it is found that both strength of O$$_{2}$$/H$$_{2}$$O adsorption and their cooperative effect upon coadsorption are responsible for the specific activity of Pt catalysts.
