8_13/2007Cover Picture: 2D Supramolecular Self-Assembly of Binary Organic Monolayers (ChemPhysChem 13/2007)

The cover picture shows STM images of ordered two-dimensional (2D) supramolecular structures obtained by the self-assembly of two small conjugated organic molecules (DIP and F16CuPc). These binary monolayers exhibit an extraordinary structural order which offers a promising avenue towards the molecular design of organic functional surfaces. In their Communication on page 1915 Barrena et al. demonstrate that the growth of these monolayers can be tailored via variation of the relative co-deposition ratio. From a fundamental point of view, this ambipolar hybrid system could serve as a model to understand non-convalent interactions in 2D supramolecular self-organisation.
