    In this paper, we elaborate on our previous communication of high coverages of oxygen on Rh(111) [J. Chem. Phys. 110, 2757 (1999)]. When dosing with O[sub 2], half of a monolayer of O is adsorbed. Higher coverages can be achieved when exposing the surface to O atoms. As the quantity of adsorbed...

    We report density functional theory calculations, using pseudopotentials with a plane wave basis, of methyl adsorbed on the MoO[sub 3](010) surface at 0.5 and 1.0 ML coverages. The MoO[sub 3] surface is modeled by a one-layer slab. Methyl is adsorbed most strongly over the terminal oxygen, where...
