In this review, a group of two-dimensional (2D) self-assembled supramolecular chemical reactions observed by our laboratory
are discussed. Our focuses mainly involve: 1) Surface supramolecular chemical reactions tuned by photo-stimulation; 2) Regulation of
surface-confined nanostructure with metal-ligand coordination; 3) Construction of 2D supramolecular nanostructures through Schiff-base
reaction observed by STM. It is envisioned that studies on these reactions are beneficial for us to understand the mechanism of
supramolecular self-assembly process and impose further control over them.
Keywords: Scanning tunneling microscopy (STM), supramolecular self-assembly, In-situ surface chemical reactions.
