The alkyl chain length on alkyl-substituted phthalocyanines (C(n)OPc) dependence of their self-organized structures was examined in this study. STM results indicated that the symmetry of ordered structures decreased as the alkyl chain became longer, with the exception of C(6)OPc, which preferentially formed a quasi-3-fold symmetrical structure. This could… CONTINUE READING
