    Abstract

    The one-dimensional (1-D) self-assembly property of an n-type hexaazatrinaphthylene (HATNA) discotic π-conjugated molecule was studied. Structurally robust unimolecular columnar stacks of HATNA with tunable length have been fabricated through a combination of supramolecular self-assembly and post-polymerization approach. Moreover, microcontact printing can be utilized to transfer the self-assembled nanostructures to the surface to create desired functional patterns.
