The emergent area of nanotechnology requires suitable procedures to organize materials on nanometer scale. In molecular electronics, molecular wires are essential building blocks for the construction of nanocircuits. A young area of research centered on the initial studies of the organization of coordination polymers on surfaces towards conductive molecular wires is presented.
