A theoretical approach based on quantum mechanics is applied to study diffusion processes of the noble metal atoms (platinum, palladium and gold) and their accumulation in graphite. It is shown that platinum and palladium atoms can easily migrate within graphite. They can link with structure defects and attract each other, forming plate clusters. Gold atoms do not penetrate into graphite layers but link with edges of the graphite breaks, forming three-dimensional particles.
