On-Surface Synthesis 2018
On-Surface Synthesis International Workshop (OSS-18) On-surface synthesis unites the easy tunability of molecular materials and the promises of self-assembly as a revolutionary production method, with the sturdiness of covalently bonded structures. This most attractive combination is drawing the interest of a rapidly increasing number of researchers. Important efforts are being devoted to augment the still scarcely equipped on-surface synthesis toolbox, to improve our understanding of the chemical reaction mechanisms, a ...
