Tip-induced deformations of meso-(4-cyanophenyl)-substituted Zn(II) porphyrin molecular wires self-assembled on KBr(001) were studied by frequency modulation dynamic force microscopy. Since the wires are weakly bonded to the KBr substrate and to the neighboring molecules, they can easily be cut by the scanning tip. We found that the damaged molecular wires self-healed at room temperature.
