Giant molecular spoked wheels in giant voids: two-dimensional molecular self-assembly goes big

Abstract

We present here the formation of giant pores in surface-confined molecular networks of a triangular-shaped dehydrobenzo-[12]annulene derivative: the diameter of the pores reaches over 7 nm and the giant pores are used as templates to accommodate a giant molecular spoked wheel, which allows us to observe rotational and adsorption–desorption dynamics of single guest molecules.
