A reaction of H2O with Li adatoms on Cu(001) at 300 K has been studied with X-ray photoelectron spectroscopy, high-resolution electron energy loss spectroscopy and work function measurement. While surface hydroxide (LiOH) forms on the surface at low coverages of Li, surface monoxide (Li2O) forms first, followed by the formation of hydroxide on the monoxide, at high coverages of Li. The origin of this coverage-dependent reaction is discussed. Structures of the reaction products on the surface are proposed.
