Bottom-Up Fabrication of Supramolecular Structures at Room Temperature

An ultimate aim of fabrication is the controlled positioning of individual atoms and molecules into perfect functional structures. Among the mechanisms to achieve such a goal is molecular repositioning on surfaces, whereby two- or even three-dimensional structures are created. We describe recent progress in the fabrication of molecular structures having a level of complexity of more than one thousand atoms, at room temperature.
