We have performed heat capacity measurement on H2 adsorbed on graphite preplated with either a monolayer of Ne or a monolayer of D2, to search for low temperature 2D liquid H2. We find evidence indicating that up to 80% of the Ne preplating is displaced by H2, followed by H2 growing on itself. This is in contrast to H2 on D2 preplated graphite in which H2 grows on D2 and possibly 2D liquid H2 exists down to 5.74K.
