The application of concepts from supramolecular chemistry can be used for the formation of 2D functional nanostructures from organic molecules. Since the underlying interactions for such structures are rather weak, on-surface covalent coupling of the monomers is a promising alternative for obtaining more stable and better conducting structures. In my presentation I will give examples for the formation of supramolecular as well as polymeric structures on solid substrates from specially designed molecular building blocks. By making use of different surface sensitive methods, insight was gained on the underlying intermolecular and molecule substrate interactions. Among others, a thermally excited hindered rotation as well as the formation of a 2D band structure was discovered.
