The C(KVV) X-ray excited Auger (XAES) spectrum for ethylene adsorbed on Ni(100) has been obtained and decon voluted to provide the undistorted lineshape. Direct comparison of this lineshape with the C(KVV) spectrum of gas-phase ethylene determines unambiguously that little rehybridization occurs upon adsorption of ethylene on Ni(100) at 100 K.
