Abstract

The tunable characteristics of the porphyrin molecular tectons have given rise to interest in investigating the self-assembled porphyrin nanoarchitectures for designing new materials. Nanostructures created by the self-assembly of meso-tetrakis(4-sulfonatophenyl)porphine and Co(III) meso-tetra(4-pyridyl)porphine chloride and their photoconductivity are reported here. These nanostructures were characterized by electron microscopy. The ratio of porphyrin tectons in the binary porphyrin nanostructures is about 3:2. The nanostructures demonstrate a high photoconductivity of about 5 × 10−5 S m−1. The dependence of the photoconductivity of the porphyrin nanostructures on the path length and temperature is demonstrated.
