Abstract Pt catalysts supported on porous carbon were prepared by hard templating route and used for HI decomposition reaction of Sulfur Iodine thermochemical cycle. These catalysts were characterized by X-ray photoelectron spectroscopy for oxidation state of platinum as well as nature of carbon present in the catalysts. It was found that platinum is present in metallic state and carbon is present in both sp{sup 2} and sp{sup 3} hybridization states. The catalysts were evaluated for their activity and stability for liquid phase HI decomposition reaction and it was observed that mesoporous carbon based catalysts were more active and stable under the reaction conditions.
