Bis‐urea‐oligothiophene (U2Tn) molecules are promising candidates for the construction of 1D semiconducting channels because of their strong tendency to self‐aggregate in solution into elongated 1D arrays. Here is reported the self‐assembly of low‐dimensional aggregates of U2Tn molecules onto several substrates (the Figure shows aggregation into directed fibers on a silica surface).
