Abstract

The adsorption induced surface chirality has been examined with high resolution STM observation of ordered glycine on Cu{110} surface. Two domains with different internal molecular arrangement have been identified. The homochiral domain shows a pseudo-centered structure while the heterochiral domain presents a clear glide plane symmetry. The lateral relationship between these two domains has also been analysed, which gives the details of the assignment of individual features in the STM images. (C) 2001 Elsevier Science B.V.
