We present the results of ab initio calculations describing the adsorption of certain small organic molecules on clean and oxidized Al(111) surfaces as well as on the α- Al(2)O(3)(0001) surface. Our results show that adsorption of benzene on the clean and oxidized Al(111) surfaces is generally weak, the adsorption energy being at most around -0.5 eV per… CONTINUE READING
