Scanned-energy mode N ls and O ls photoelectron diffraction has been used to determine the local geometry of glycine adsorbed on Cu(110) in an ordered (3x2) phase. The results are consistent with a molecular geometry in which the C-C axis lies approximately parallel to the surface and the molecule bonds across a pair of [<1(1)over bar>0] Cu surface rows through the two oxygen atoms of the carboxyl group and the N atom of the amino group. The N atom is displaced by 0.24+/-0.10 Angstrom off an atop site along the [<1(1)over bar>0] rows with a Cu-N nearest-neighbour distance of 2.04+/-0.02 Angstrom. The carboxyl bonds to two Cu atoms in a [<1(1)over bar>0] row, with the O atoms displaced 0.80+/-0.07 Angstrom from atop in  towards the amino group with a Cu-O nearest-neighbour bond length of 2.03+/-0.03 Angstrom and a resulting tilt of the O-Cu bond relative to the surface normal of 23+/-2. A specific structural model comprising two molecular moieties per unit mesh which has the space group plgl, consistent with the qualitative LEED observations, is proposed on the basis of these data.
