A simple mathematical model of Pt-catalyst surface influence on both carbon monoxide and oxygen molecules behavior is considered. It is shown that an electric field, which is located in a near-surface layer of the Pt-catalyst, leads to a significant change of both the dipole moment and the equilibrium interatomic distance.
