We use low-temperature scanning tunneling microscopy in combination with angle-resolved ultraviolet and two-photon photoemission spectroscopy to investigate the interfacial electronic structure of titanyl phthalocyanine (TiOPc) on Cu(110). We show that the presence of two unique molecular adsorption configurations is crucial for a molecular-level analysis of the hybridized interfacial electronic structure. Specifically, thermally induced self-assembly exposes marked adsorbate-configuration-specific contributions to the interfacial electronic structure. The results of this work demonstrate an avenue towards understanding and controlling interfacial electronic structure in chemisorbed films even for the case of complex film structure.
