Besides globular clusters and monolayers, polyphenylene dendrimer 1 self-organizes into micrometer long nanofibers on a HOPG surface. Fibrillar nanostructures have also been visualized on a silanized mica surface, while on a mica surface the dendrimers only aggregate into globular clusters. Two possibilities for the development of dendrimer nanofibers are proposed.||URI:||https://hdl.handle.net/10356/95495
