Pascal, M., Lamont, C.L.A., Kittel, M., Hoeft, J.T., Terborg, R., Polcik, M., Kang, J.H., Toomes, R.L. and Woodruff, D.P. (2001) Quantitative structural determination of the high coverage phase of the benzoate species on Cu(110). Surface Science, 492. pp. 285-293. ISSN 0039-6028

The local adsorption site and molecular orientation of the benzoate species adsorbed on Cu(1 1 0) at 330 K have been determined using O1s scanned-energy mode photoelectron diffraction. The molecule was found to interact with the surface via the carboxylate group, giving a Cu–O bond length of 1.91 Å. The molecules occupy the short bridge sites (the O atoms being slightly displaced from atop sites) and are aligned along the [ 1 0] azimuth with the molecular plane oriented perpendicular to the surface
