Passive resistance: The supramolecular self-assembly of halogenated molecules is achieved on an oxide-passivated Cu(110) surface by tuning the molecule–surface interactions. The Cu(110)O(2×1) oxygen atoms do not undergo Ullmann cross-coupling reactions, although this reaction is catalyzed by a bare Cu surface, instead suppressing molecule–molecule interactions.
