Abstract

The observation of chain-like structures of self-assembled C-60 Molecules on HOPG surfaces at room temperature in aerial atmosphere by means of scanning tunneling microscopy is reported. The ca. 2.5 nm center-to-center distance between two fullerene molecules is much larger than in the close-packed layered or film structures Of C-60 usually found on HOPG surfaces.
