A ZnO(404̄1) surface, which is a stepped [4(101̄0) × (0001)] surface containing a high density of anion vacancies was prepared. When compared with the nonpolar (101̄0) surface, the (404̄1) surface adsorbed O2 and methanol more strongly, but CO2 more weakly. The decomposition products of methanol were different on these two surfaces.
