47_46b/2008Inside Cover: Ordering and Stabilization of Metal–Organic Coordination Chains by Hierarchical Assembly through Hydrogen Bonding at a Surface (Angew. Chem. Int. Ed. 46/2008)

Selective interactions impose a structural hierarchy during self-assembly and are key for rational tailoring of the supramolecular architecture, according to S. L. Tait, and co-workers in their Communication on page 8835 ff. A labile 1D copper-bipyridine coordination system (blue in the STM topographs) is stabilized and ordered through cooperative assembly with terephthalic acid (red) to produce well-ordered self-assembled nanostructures.
