Growth of CuO chains and their ordering on Ag(110) surface were monitored by scanning tunneling microscopy (STM). When Cu atoms were deposited on a (2 × 1) AgO Ag(110) surface at room temperature, the AgO chains in the [001] direction diminished and new strings of CuO grew along the [110] direction and yield a (2 × 2) p2mg ordering. When a Ag(110) surface with coexisting AgO and CuO chains was exposed to CO at room temperature, the AgO chains were selectively reduced.
