The production of a novel two-dimensional bimolecular surface structure using weak noncovalent interactions is demonstrated and observed by scanning tunneling microscopy. This work follows the three-dimensional (3D) ideas of crystal engineering and applies the concepts of supramolecular synthons to molecular systems constrained to 2D by physisorption on a conducting surface. We demonstrate a well-ordered planar structure that self-assembles through the influence of fluorine-phenyl interactions… Expand
