Supramolecular assembly at surfaces is a burgeoning field dealing with the use of hydrogen bonds, metal-organic coordination and van der Waals forces to form two-dimensional long range ordered patterns.
At the same time, there has been a recent surge of interest in controlling the formation of covalent polymers at surfaces, following the need to create more robust structures that may have advanced functionalities.
This conference will bring together leading scientists from chemistry and surface physics communities presenting recent breakthroughs in the formation and scanning probe microscopy characterization of functional supramolecular structures at surfaces as well as surface-confined reactions, including synthesis of linear conjugated polymers (aka molecular wires) and two-dimensional polymers.
