(2011): Predicting the influence of a p2-symmetric substrate on molecular self-organization with an interaction-site model. In: Chemical communications, Vol. 47: S. 1800-1802


An interaction-site model can a priori predict molecular selforganisation on a new substrate in Monte Carlo simulations. This is experimentally confirmed with scanning tunnelling microscopy on Fre´chet dendrons of a pentacontane template. Local and global ordering motifs, inclusion molecules and a rotated unit cell are correctly predicted.
