Double-walled nanoporous networks based on the Schiff base reaction
of nonplanar tripodic building blocks and subsequent dipole-directed
self-assembly were fabricated on highly oriented pyrolytic graphite
(HOPG) at the gas–solid interface. This is the first example of nonplanar
molecules exploited as precursors for a surface reaction.
