CHAPTER 3

Low-Dimensional Supramolecular Assemblies on Surfaces

Low-dimensional supramolecular architectures with well-defined arrangement and desired functionalities over macroscopic area are important building blocks for functional organic nanodevices as well as ideal model systems by which to investigate the working mechanism of molecular electronics at the atomic scale. This chapter discusses the construction of one-dimensional (1D) molecular chains and two-dimensional (2D) molecular networks involving single component or binary molecular building blocks based on the non-covalent interactions, including the hydrogen-bonding and metal–ligand coordination. We will also discuss the on-surface polymerization induced covalently bonded 1D molecular chains and 2D molecular networks.
