Workshop on SPM & on-surface chemistry


Aim of this workshop is to discuss recent progress, our understanding and future perspectives of on-surface chemistry and high-resolution AFM/STM images with functionalized tips. We are witnesses of fast progress made recently in the field of on-surface chemistry and scanning probe microscopy, which have opened completely new possibilities in exploring not only new routes towards the synthesis of complex molecular nanostructures of desired material properties but also to study novel chemical reactions not available in traditional organic chemistry yet. For example, as in the on-surface chemical reactions employed so far, the metal substrate played a key role in initiating the reaction (mostly Ullmann coupling). But the formation of long range ordered molecular structures and/or using an insulator substrate requires new strategies for the covalent coupling between organic molecules. This goal can be achieved only by combining the expertise from different fields including surface science, organic chemistry, scanning probe and computer material science. This workshop should provide a platform for the open discussion and brain storming. The workshop is scheduled for 2-day including several short talks (e.g. 20 minutes) with extensive time for discussion.
