    Scanning tunneling microscopy studies reveal that trace amounts of adsorbed S below a critical coverage on the order of 10 mML have little effect on the coarsening and decay of monolayer Ag adatom islands on Ag(111) at 300 K. In contrast, above this critical coverage, decay is greatly...

    Abstract. In situ STM results on the surface structure of Cu(100) electrodes in sulfuric and hydrochloric acid solution, both at potentials in the double-layer range and at the onset of anodic Cu dissolution, are presented. The Cu surface structure, morphology and dynamic behavior are found to...

    Pre-adsorbed sulfur controls nucleation of Ag islands on Ag(111), at coverages above a very small critical value. Sulfur can exert opposite effects: it accelerates mass transfer of Ag to steps and hence inhibits nucleation under some conditions, but it impedes mass transfer and hence enhances...

    We investigated the adsorption of 2,5-di-chloro-thio-phenol (DCTP) on Cu(111) at 15 K and the formation of the thiolate upon electronic and thermal excitation. Initially, the sulfur atom of DCTP adsorbs at an on-top site and the molecule is able to rotate through six almost identical surface...
