The Chemisorption of Co on the Zn(Ⅱ) and Cu(Ⅰ) sites presenting on the Cu/ZnO(0001) surface has been studied with DFT method and HF method. While HF calculations underestimate the M-CO bonding, and give a wrong order of the M-CO(M=Zn(Ⅱ), Cu(Ⅰ)) bond strength, MP2 and DFT calculations give a rather realistic description for the chemisorption systems. Our theoretical prediction of IR spectroscopy of the Co/Cu/ZnO system is in good accordance with the experimental outcome.
