Derivatization and Functionalization of Molecular Matrix by Hydrogen Bond at Liquid–Solid Interface
Abstract:Derivatization of porous molecular network formed by 1,3,5-tris (10-carboxydecyloxy) benzene (TCDB) via hydrogen bond interaction is demonstrated in this work. With the introduction of 4,4′-bipyridyl (Bpy) the TCDB network is observed to form a heteromolecular cluster, TCDB6-Bpy6, on highly oriented pyrolytic graphite (HOPG) surface under ambient conditions using scanning tunneling microscopy (STM). The derivatized network is further observed to accommodate single guest species such as coronene to form a well-ordered ternary two-dimensional (2D) structure.
