    Benzotriazole (BTA) adsorption on clean Cu(110) and oxygen reconstructed Cu(110)-2 × 1 and c(6 × 2) surfaces has been investigated by scanning tunneling microscopy (STM). The STM images show that BTA forms the c(4 × 2) commensurate phase on the clean Cu(110)-1 × 1 surface. On the other hand, STM images of BTA adsorbed on the oxygen-induced Cu(110)-2 × 1 surface show a fully disordered structure. From a kinetic point of view, BTA molecules should adsorb preferentially on the oxygen-induced Cu(110)-2 × 1 added row compared to the clean Cu(110) surface.
