On-surface aryl–aryl coupling via selective C–H activation

Author affiliations

Abstract

Through the interplay of high-resolution scanning tunneling microscopy (STM) imaging/manipulation and density functional theory (DFT) calculations, we have demonstrated that an unprecedented selective aryl–aryl coupling via direct C–H bond activation can be successfully achieved on Cu(110). These findings present a simple and generalized route for preparing low dimensional carbon nanomaterials.
