Metallosupramolecular engineering on surfaces provides a powerful strategy toward surface-confined coordination architectures with prospects for several application fields. To date most efforts concentrated on incorporating transition metals, and only recently we pioneered lanthanide-directed assembly.

Herein we review recent advances towards designing interfacial supramolecular nano-architectures with lanthanide centers. We focus on molecular-level investigations, mainly relying on scanning probe microscopy, providing atomistic insights into the formation, stability and manipulability of metal-organic compounds and networks.
