Atomic force microscope images of polymerized monolayers of n-(2-aminoethyl)-10,12-tricosadiynamide revealed parallel rows of molecules with a side-by-side spacing of approximately equal to 0.5 nanometer. Forces used for imaging (10(-8) newton) had no observable effect on the polymer strands. These results demonstrate that atomic force microscope images can be obtained for an organic system.
