The news correspondents obtained a quote from the research from INSTM, "Such networks can be grouped in two general classes, depending on their structural habit: the so-called 'stripes' phases, formed by alternating monomolecular stripes of C-60 and TPP, and the so-called 'pores' phases, where a fullerene net accommodates isolated TPP molecules in nanometer-sized pores. These phases are of general interest in the field of surface-supported electron donor-acceptor systems, since they represents a rare example of fullerene-containing surface-supported bicomponent supramolecular networks where the binary nanostructures are definitely more stable thermodynamically than the two separated single-component phases, thereby resembling three-dimensional TPP/C-60 cocrystals."
According to the news reporters, the research concluded: "The thermodynamic stability in an extended temperature range has profound consequences on the degree of long-range order attainable in the self-assembly process."
