Graphene nanoribbons (GNRs) are of interest due to their potential in electronics, energy conversion, and storage. For atomically precise GNRs, elaborate bottom-up fabrication protocols have been developed, utilising the reactivity of a metallic support.1 However this approach often results in GNR arrays with a variety of lengths. Here we employ a different approach for the preparation and study of GNRs on surfaces: chemical synthesis and purification of well-defined nanoribbons2 followed by processing with electrospray controlled ion beam deposition (ES-CIBD). With this method, we can deposit well-defined GNRs on any solid support under ultra-high vacuum conditions. The quality of the films produced is exemplified for a ∼ 3 nm GNR on Ag(111). We explore their self-assembly and thermally activated polymerisation reactions by means of scanning tunnelling microscopy.
