A neutron-diffraction study of deuterated-ethylene overlayers on graphite basal planes reveals the existence of three distinct adsorbed solid phases as well as the coexistence of adsorbed and bulk phases at higher coverages. Evidence of a surface wetting transition involving transfer of molecules from the bulk to adsorbed phase is also obtained.
