Two foldamer molecular conformers and their self-assemblies are investigated by STM at liquid/solid interfaces. A chiral structure can be obtained both from the adsorption of the two different conformers and from the assemblies formed at the liquid–solid interface. This finding suggests a convenient approach to controlling and fabricating 2D chiral nanostructures.
