Abstract

Single molecular chains of π-conjugated polymers such as polythiophene and polydiacetylene were clearly observed by STM, and their molecular structures and/or conformation were discussed in relation to bonding characteristics. It should be noted that even molecular weight could be determined using well-resolved STM images.
