Solution preparation of two-dimensional covalently linked networks by polymerization of 1,3,5-Tri(4-iodophenyl)benzene on Au(111).


The polymerization of 1,3,5-tri(4-iodophenyl)benzene (TIPB) on Au(111) through covalent aryl-aryl coupling is accomplished using a solution-based approach and investigated by scanning tunneling microscopy. Drop-casting of the TIPB monomer onto Au(111) at room temperature results in poorly ordered noncovalent arrangements of molecules and partial… (More)
