Abstract

original image

Fullerenes framed: The combination of molecule–molecule interactions and molecule–silicon substrate interactions leads to the formation of a large-scale 2D open supramolecular framework with improved thermal stability up to 400 K on a semiconductor surface. The robust open honeycomb network controls the growth of and serves as a template for a noncompact hexagonal fullerene array at room temperature (see picture).
