Abstract: The interaction of water with Fe$ 3$O$ 4$001 is studied by densityfunctional theory DFT calculations including an on-site Coulomb term. Forisolated molecules dissociative adsorption is strongly promoted at surfacedefect sites, while at higher coverages a hydrogen-bonded network forms withalternating molecular and dissociated species. This mixed adsorption mode and asuppression of the $\sqrt{2}\times \sqrt{2}R45^{\circ}$-reconstruction areconfirmed by a quantitative low energy electron diffraction LEED analysis.Adsorbate induced electron transfer processes add a new dimension towardsunderstanding the catalytic activity of magnetite001.
