Nanostructures built from porphyrins have shown much promise in diverse applications such as light harvesting, optoelectronics, gas sensing and molecular electronics [1,2,3]. Investigating these nanostructures on metallic surfaces allows investigations of the electronic properties of individual nanostructures . It has been shown that such nanostructures can be synthesized on surfaces through homocoupling of porphyrin molecules at the macrocycle[4,5]. The resulting oligomers are of particular interest as they are fully conjugated and the reaction leaves no side products on the surface.
Here, we report scanning tunneling microscopy results for porphine coupling on Au(111). The binding motifs of the reaction products are shown to be not only determined by energetic stability, but also by the reaction kinetics. Therefore, the final structure and hence electronic properties of the oligomers can be tuned via different reaction pathways while using the same monomers.
