On edge: Self‐assembled monolayers of a bis (hydrazone)‐based molecular grid physisorbed on graphite are studied by scanning tunneling microscopy (see picture). High order is attained at the supramolecular level by thermal annealing of the grid‐based films. A preferential edge‐on configuration of the molecular grid with respect to the substrate is found.
