Abstract

Abstract The adsorption induced surface chirality has been examined with high resolution STM observation of ordered glycine on Cu{1 1 0} surface. Two domains with different internal molecular arrangement have been identified. The homochiral domain shows a pseudo-centered structure while the heterochiral domain presents a clear glide plane symmetry. The lateral relationship between these two domains has also been analysed, which gives the details of the assignment of individual features in the STM images.
