The initiation and high resolution control of surface confined chemical reactions would be both beneficial for nanofabrication and fundamentally interesting. In this work, mechanistic aspects of spatially confined Suzuki and Heck 'catalytic nanolithography' are investigated by varying the experimental parameters and noting their effects on apparent reactivity and lithographic yield. A variety of molecular couplings can be driven by the activated scanning probe with linewidths ultimately limit...Expand abstract
