What is more, different kinds of precursors can trigger the coupling along the two different mechanisms under the same noble metal substrate, such as the coupling of tetraphenylporphyrins (TPP) with different numbers and positions of peripheral Br atoms on Au(111) resulting in the formation of LD arrays, since no organometallic intermediates were observed [71].
