Abstract

Because of their potential for use in advanced electronic, nanomechanical, and other applications, large two-dimensional, carbon-rich networks have become an important target to the scientific community. Current methods for the synthesis of these materials have many limitations including lack of molecular-level control and poor diversity. Here, we present a method for the synthesis of two-dimensional carbon nanomaterials synthesized by Mo- and Cu-catalyzed cross-linking of alkyne-containing selfassembled monolayers on SiO2 and Si3N4. When deposited and cross-linked on flat surfaces, spheres, cylinders, or textured substrates, monolayers take the form of these templates and retain their structure on template removal. These nanomaterials can also be transferred from surface to surface and suspended over cavities without tearing. This approach to the synthesis of monolayer carbon networks greatly expands the chemistry, morphology, and size of carbon films accessible for analysis and device applications.
