In the last years perylene derivatives have attracted much attention because of possible and already existing applications in electronic and optoelectronic devices. The derivative (4,9-diaminoperylenequinone-3,10-diimine = DAPQDI) we investigated belongs to a class of compounds which is cited very often in the patent literature for photovoltaic devices. From differential thermoanalysis and gravimetry it is known that the DAPQDI can polymerize. With UHV-STM experiments we tried to figure out if this polymerization can also take place on surfaces. Therefore, thin films in the monolayer regime were prepared by OMBE (Organic Molecular Beam Epitaxy) on Ag(111) and Cu(111) substrates. Additionally, the samples could be annealed. In a first step, the arrangement of DAPQDI on the surface was examined. Ordered arrangements of stripes running parallel to the step edges of the substrate were found. In a next step, the influence of annealing temperatures on the molecular arrangement will be examined in order to be able to initiate the polymerization.
