Hierarchical organization of a robust porphyrin cage self-assembled by hydrogen bonds Academic Article uri icon


  • Porphyrins appended with four rigid hydrogen bonding motifs on the meso positions were synthesized and self-assembled into a cofacial cage with four complementary bis(decyl)melamine units in dry solvents. The hydrocarbon chains on the melamine mediate the formation of nanofilms on surfaces as the solvent slowly evaporates.
