International Workshop "On-Surface Synthesis"

Ecole de Physique des Houches

May 25th - 30th 2014

In less than a decade, on-surface synthesis by covalent coupling of reactive precursors adsorbed on metallic, semi-conducting or insulating surfaces has emerged as a powerful approach for the fabrication of novel molecular architectures with potential applications in nanoelectronics, optoelectronics and other fields where new low-dimensional materials with tailored properties are needed. Using this bottom-up route, atomically precise graphene nanoribbons, polyphthalocyanines films, metal coordination frameworks, porous metal networks, superhoneycomb frameworks, etc... have been synthesized. This workshop will bring together a number of leading scientists working on various strategies to synthesize and study single molecules, 1D and 2D covalently bonded molecular architectures obtained by on-surface synthesis.

The workshop will be organized in series of lectures by senior scientists (45 min including questions) and shorter focused presentations selected among the participants (30 min including questions). All the contributions will be published in a book edited by Springer in a volume of the series "Advances in Atom and Single Molecule Machines".
