Trapping of Charged Gold Adatoms by Dimethyl Sulfoxide on a Gold Surface.
We report the formation of dimethyl sulfoxide (DMSO) molecular complexes on Au(111) enabled by native gold adatoms unusually linking the molecules via a bonding of ionic nature, yielding a mutualExpand

Toward Fractioning of Isomers through Binding-Induced Acceleration of Azobenzene Switching.
The E/Z isomerization process of a uracil-azobenzene derivative in which the nucleobase is conjugated to a phenyldiazene tail is studied in view of its ability to form triply H-bonded complexes withExpand

Re-evaluating how charge transfer modifies the conformation of adsorbed molecules† †Electronic supplementary information (ESI) available. See DOI: 10.1039/c8nr02237b
A combined quantitative experimental and theoretical structure determination shows TCNQ is not bent on Ag(111) as expected from conventional wisdom.

Binary Conformational Switches in a Porphyrin Chain: Tautomerization and Stereoisomerization
In the last decade, hydrogen (H-)tautomerization i.e. a reaction that involves simple intramolecular proton transfer, has been studied in single phthalocyanine, porphyrin, and porphycene derivative...
Bifunctional Behavior of a Porphyrin in Hydrogen-Bonded Donor–Acceptor Molecular Chains on a Gold Surface
Peculiar hydrogen-bonded molecular chains are spontaneously created from the self-assembly on a gold surface of a porphyrin functionalized with four aromatic amine moieties. The molecular chains areExpand

Probing peripheral H-bonding functionalities in BN-doped polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons.
The replacement of carbon atoms at the zig-zag periphery of a benzo[fg]tetracenyl derivative with an NBN atomic triad allows the formation of heteroatom-doped PAHs isosteres, which expose BN mimicsExpand
