TiO$$_{2}$$ has been extensively studied because of high photocatalytic activity. However, the basic reaction process of photocatalysis has not been understood yet. In this study, the difference in water adsorption reaction between rutile and anatase was clarified using synchrotron radiation soft X-ray photoelectron spectroscopy (XPS). The OH component observed at the higher binding energy side was clearly confirmed in the rutile type TiOTiO$$_{2}$$, suggesting that the rutile type is more reactive to water adsorption.
