We have studied the electronic structure of polycrystalline PdH0.6 at 100K by means of photoelectron spectroscopy (XPS and UPS). In PdH0.6 as compared to Pd the 4d-band is shifted away from EF and N(EF) is considerably decreased. In contradiction to earlier investigations we do not observe a band at 5eV. However, we see weak emission at 8eV probably related with the hydrogen induced states or with chemisorbed hydrogen. The chemical shift of the 3d5/2 core level is very small (+0.15 ± 0.10eV). A weak additional peak at 5.5eV is found on Pd samples which have been exposed to O2 at 600K.
