Abstract

In this chapter the experimental results on adsorption of iodide ion on Au(100) surface is described.

STM and LEED studies in UHV yield a c(p√2 × 2√2)R45° structure at coverages slightly higher than 0.4 ML which compresses uniaxially with increasing coverage. For θI> 0.5 ML, the structure transforms into a rotated hexagonal structure [1].
