The validity of local-density theory for describing chemisorption bonding on a reactive-transition-metal surface is studied by means of self-consistent band calculations for c(2×2) O on Ni(001). We find O 2p bonding states 2 eV wide (and split by 1 eV) lying 5.5 eV below and the antibonding states just above the Fermi level in very good agreement with available spectroscopic data.
