The introduction of substituents into the aromatic core has been proven to be a versatile tool in the generation of acenes. Within this study, we use a tetracene precursor with two embedded epimino-groups in the aromatic backbone, wehreas after moderate annealing one nitrogen-carbon bond can be cleaved or the complete group can be dissociated. This partial reaction has been proven with high-resolution STM images. While we could verify that the originated tetracene molecules with two of these new formed groups are strongly bonded to the surface and cannot be manipulated, we could show that the molecules with one nitrogen-containing side group after the reaction can be rotated around the nitrogen atom. Consequently, the molecules are anchored on Au(111) with nitrogen-gold bonds via the emerging side groups after the planarization and breaking of the bond.
