A dry method for forming a single organic layer on a substrate, the method involving: depositing organic molecules by vapour deposition on the substrate, wherein some of the molecules are bonded to the substrate and others are held together via intermolecular interaction, and removing using a dry process the organic molecules that are held together by breaking the intermolecular interaction, leaving a monolayer of organic molecules bonded to the substrate.
