The conversion of a biphenylthiol self-assembled monolayer (BPT SAM) on copper into graphene via electron irradiation and annealing is described by Andrey Turchanin and co-workers on page 4146. This 2D solid-state reaction can be tuned by temperature, allowing the crystallinity of the graphene layers to be adjusted. It is feasible to create graphene structures of any 3D shape as molecular self-assembly can be conducted on nonplanar suraces. Scanning tunneling microscopy of the PT SAM on Cu(111) is described.
