Adsorption of D-alaninol on Cu(10 0) at room temperature has been investigated by photoelectron spectroscopy in the soft X-ray and VUV energy range and low energy electron diffraction (LEED). D-Alaninol was found by LEED to self-assemble at full coverage; core and valence photoemission spectra are presented at low and full coverage. Chemisorption occurs at room temperature. The bonding at low coverage takes place at the hydroxylic group; at full coverage there is evidence of bonding for both hydroxylic and amino groups.
