Besides the inherent interest of donor-acceptor nanostructures for potential optoelectronic devices, an appropriate choice of molecules allows the synthesis of highly ordered molecular mixtures with controlled intermolecular interactions (see figure). Comparison of the corresponding single-component and binary layers provides systems with distinctly different molecule–molecule interactions, in which to study their effect on the interrelated molecule–substrate coupling.
