This is the final report for the 'Rational design and characterisation of supramolecular architectures on surfaces' (RADSAS). The RADSAS project aimed at developing efficient strategies for parallel, two-dimensional molecular self-assembly on surfaces, which is considered an indispensable prerequisite for the technical realisation of supramolecular design and engineering.

The report covers the objectives and the significant results accomplished. It notes that new opportunities for the future fabrication of nanoscale devices will critically depend on the controlled fabrication of surface-supported functional supramolecular structures. A promising strategy is to guide the molecular self-assembly by a combination of specific molecular functionalisation and anisotropic molecule-substrate interactions.
