Figure 1

Nc-AFM micrograph of [MnIII 6 CrIII](ClO 4 ) 3 on HOPG, 753 × 790 nm2scan. The substrate is covered 60% with a monolayer. Many of the monolayer's edges run parallel to each other. (a) Topography with nine areas named from 1 to 9. (b) LCPD shows two main areas: one with a LCPD of -0.26 V for the brighter islands and one with a LCPD of -0.38 V in the bottom right quadrant of the image. (c) Line scan across an island. The position of the line scan is marked with a black line in (a).
