The morphology and mesoscopic patterns of dialkylmelamine monolayer bound to thiobarbituric acid were investigated by atomic force microscopy. The surface morphology was effectively controlled through adjustment of the thiobarbituric acid concentration and thermal treatment. The thermal treatment of the monolayer provided uniform films comprised of striped mesoscopic patterns with molecular thicknesses.
