We report the results of chemisorption in saturating conditions of D-alaninol on Cu(100) in term of the analysis of low-energy electron diffraction and scanning tunneling microscopy data. A large two-dimensional, single domain, ordered chiral structure of quadrangular tetrameric molecular units is formed. The four molecules interact differently with the surface in the two orthogonal directions.
