The valence band structures of the (2 x 1) and c(2 x 2) phases of ZnSe{100} have been mapped using angle-resolved photoelectron spectroscopy. The surface band structures of each phase are different and are due mainly to surface selenium. A number of surface-related states are observed around 1 eV, 2 eV and 3-4 eV, the most intense of which is observed around 1 eV across the entire Brillouin zone measured; the "2 x" periodicity was just observable in the energy dispersion along the [110] direction of the (2 x 1) phase.
