Abstract

Standing on their own two feet: Underpotential deposition of Cu on Au(111) yields a surface onto which 1,3-benzenedicarboxylic acid (IPA) and 1,3,5-benzenetricarboxylic acid (TMA) adsorb in a bipodal configuration. Both molecules form highly crystalline isostructural monolayers, thus demonstrating the potential of the IPA moiety as tecton for self-assembled monolayers. A thin film of a Cu–TMA coordination polymer was grown on a patterned TMA monolayer.
