Abstract

(Figure Presented) Fivefold versus twofold: Symmetry-breaking interactions in the monolayer of the buckybowl corannulene on Cu(110) lead to the formation of extended mirror domains (see picture). The molecules are adsorbed in a tilted geometry with the bowl opening pointing away from the surface.
