TAPP on copper: 1,3,8,10-Tetraazaperopyrene (TAPP) is chemically activated on a copper (111) surface, with its mobile adatoms, to form a highly ordered surface coordination network. At elevated temperatures it reacts to generate covalently coupled polymers, as illustrated. The copper substrate is crucially important in determining the structures of the aggregates and available reaction channels on the surface.
