Electronic and atomic structure of hexagonal boron nitride (h-BN) on lattice-mismatched transition metal surfaces has been studiedsystematically by X-ray absorption and photoelectron spectroscopy and diffraction. The strength of interfacial chemical interactionbetween h-BN and the substrates is rising in the row Pt(11 1)–Ir(111)–Rh(111)–Ru(0001). This rise directly correlates with a growingcorrugation of the h-BN monolayer. In particular, the h-BN nanomesh has larger pores on Ru(0001) than on the less reactive Rh(111)substrate. Our experiments provide strong evidence for the single-layer model of the nanomesh structure.
