In a molecularly decorated surface, the molecular tiles are “glued” to the surface by binding constants and possibly further “glued” to each other by cooperativity factors. At odds with mosaics, these “glues” come with the tiles and cannot be removed or supplemented. Binding polynomials quantify glue amounts from experimental data and may predict molecular self-organization on surfaces that can be exploited in organic (opto-)electronics.
