time observation of molecules
adsorbed at the solid liquid interface.
The STM tip has been used to initiate
chemical reactions between molecules adsorbed at the solid-liquid
interface. In the image above you can see where polymerisation has been
induced between monomer units adsorbed on graphite.
Spatial distribution for
probability of the polymerization reaction at various bias voltages (a)
and (b) with N(CH3)4ClO4.
