Whereas molecular electronics needs well-controlled 3D geometries for decoupling or interconnecting individual molecules, conjugated polymers form disordered structures when deposited on a substrate. We show that this trend can be overcome in polythiophene derivatives designed so as to exploit weak sulfur-bromide interactions. A self-template effect follows, leading to staggered organizations of well-aligned electronically-decoupled conjugated strands, as observed in-situ by scanning tunneling microscopy and spectroscopy on graphite.
