Abstract: In contrast to those for their polymeric counterparts, the controlled construction of organic heterostructured architectures derived from π-conjugated organic molecules has been rare and remains a great challenge. Herein, we develop a simple single-step solution strategy for the realization of organic heterostructures comprising coronene and perylene. Under a sequential crystallization process, an efficient doping step for coronene and perylene domains enables their perfect lattice matching, which facilitates facet-selective epitaxial growth of perylene domains on both the tips and the side surfaces of the preformed seed microwires by manipulating the growth pathways of the two pairs of materials. The present synthetic route provides a promising platform to investigate the detailed formation mechanism of complex organic heterostructures with specific topological configurations, further directing the construction of more functional heterostructured materials.
