    The STM study on the C70/C60> adsorption on the Cu(111)1 × 1 surface has shown that C70/C60 forms the 4 × 4 commensurate reconstruction. A small fraction of solute 60, introduced to the C70 film is found to segregate at domain boundaries (DB) upon annealing the surface at approximately 350 °C. The segregation is found to be dependent on the detailed structure of the DB. This phenomenon is analyzed based on the broken bond model.
