Graphene nanoribbons (GNRs) are an exciting material that has aroused much interest due to their excellent and tunable electronic properties. Using on-surface synthesis, narrow chevron-like GNRs, which host a mixture of armchair and zigzag edge terminations, were synthesized from the prochiral molecular building block 6,12-dibromochrysene on a Au(111) substrate . An interesting property of these ribbons is the changing structural symmetry depending on the number of monomer units incorporated in the ribbon, where ribbons consisting of an odd and even number of monomers are point and mirror symmetric, respectively. In our research, we characterized the electronic properties of these GNRs using scanning tunneling spectroscopy, also in dependence of their length and parity.
