The interaction of gas phase methyl radicals, ©CH3, with a well characterized surface in ultrahigh vacuum has been studied for the first time. Methyl radicals were produced by low pressure thermal decomposition of azomethane flowing through a hot alumina tube. The sticking coefficient and surface reactions of
