Responsive supramolecularly engineered hybrid materials are key in multifunctional (opto)electronics. However, their practical use requires the optimization of the self-assembly of multimodular architectures at surfaces using non-conventional methods, their controlled manipulation and responsiveness to external stimuli, and the quantitative study of various physico-chemical properties at distinct length- and time-scales. My lecture will review our recent findings on:

(i) The STM monitoring of the reversible on-surface reactivity under thermodynamic control making use for the first time of dynamic covalent chemistry approaches at the solid-liquid interface. We focused our attention to the double imine formation between 4-(hexadecyloxy)benzaldehyde and different α,ω-diamines as well as reversible bistransimination. In particular, we provided direct evidence of the ability of adsorption free energy to act as a physical agent that shift equilibriums and eventually drives completion of a reaction thereby selecting a given constituent of a dynamic covalent library. [1]

(ii) The harnessing of the yield of exfoliation of graphene in liquid media by mastering the supramolecular approach via combination with ad-hoc functional molecules, leading ultimately to the bottom-up formation of optically responsive graphene based nanocomposites for electronics. [2]

(iii) The combination of graphene and polymeric semiconductors to improve the electrical properties of the two components [3] and to fabricate memories.[4]

(iv) The tailoring multicomponent films comprising photochromic systems and semiconducting molecules, and their exploitation to realise multifunctional devices such as optically switchable field-effect transistors. [5]
