On‐surface synthesis is a unique tool for growing low‐dimensional carbon nanomaterials with precise structural control down to the atomic level.
One of the most applied reactions to covalently interlink molecular precursors is dehalogenative aryl‐aryl coupling.
Failures in this process are often related to the steric hindrance between reactants, which may arise due to their coplanarity upon adsorption on a surface. In a recent work we proposed a copolymerization approach to overcome the limitations that prevent intermolecular homocoupling. We used suitable linkers as additional reactants to demonstrate formation of fully conjugated polycyclic nanowires incorporating non‐benzenoid rings. This record contains data to support the experimental and theoretical evidences discussed in the manuscript.
