A set of Benzorod arrays on a graphene substrate has been investigated by performing classical molecular-dynamics simulations. Benzorod is composed of aligned and dehydrogenated benzene rings that are stacked to form a rod-like structure. It has been found that the arrays considered axe thermally stable up to elevated temperatures, with a dependence on length.
