The kinetic control of the synthesis of polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons (PAH) is one of the most desired features in organic synthesis. In this work, we report the synthesis and characterization by STM/nc-AFM of several PAHs from one single precursor in which two different kinetic-driven mechanisms control the possible products at high temperatures. In the first mechanism, we show that the surface-induced mechanical constraints on a strained helical reactant leads to the synthesis of planar objects with non-benzenoid rings. In the second mechanism, the chemical pathway is mediated by an unusual C-C bond cleavage of the helical reactant mediated by the concerted motion of individual gold adatoms. These observations, supported by DFT and state-of-the-art QM/MM calculations, render a scenario where the molecular internal stress and the adatoms' role enable routes to the kinetic control of selected chemical reactions.
