The study reported herein details a method to generate through self-assembly the shortest of p stacks, only two molecules high, which are covalently attached to gold substrates. A rigid, surface-bound molecular receptor (Figure 1a) is first formed through the simultaneous attachment of three surface-active groups to a metal. These receptors bind molecules… CONTINUE READING
