High-resolution electron energy loss spectroscopy has been used to investigate the adsorption and co-adsorption of oxygen and CO on the Pt3Ni(111) surface. For the sake of comparison, similar measurements have also been performed on the Pt(111) surface. We find that CO adsorbs at the same manner on both surfaces. By contrast, significant differences between the two surfaces exist concerning the adsorption of O and the co-adsorption of O with CO.
