This Minireview focuses on the very recent developments in the field of porphyrin-based self-assembled nanomaterials with a particular focus on the use of tetrapyrrolic macrocycles bearing amphiphilic and ionic functionalities. As one of the most studied molecular materials, the importance of porphyrin-derived nanomaterials has attracted wide interest in many applications like catalysis, photodynamic therapy, and organic solar cells to name a few. By using key examples that have recently appeared in the literature, the discussion unfolds through two sections: amphiphilic and ionic assemblies. Although it focuses on the nanostructuring methodologies used to obtain organized materials, the discussion will also target the physical characterization of the functional materials for their implementation in prototypes.

Abstract

This Minireview focuses on the very recent developments in the field of porphyrin-based self-assembled nanomaterials with a particular focus on the use of tetrapyrrolic macrocycles bearing amphiphilic and ionic functionalities. As one of the most studied molecular materials, the importance of porphyrin-derived nanomaterials has attracted wide interest in many applications like catalysis, photodynamic therapy, and organic solar cells to name a few. By using key examples that have recently appeared in the literature, the discussion unfolds through two sections: amphiphilic and ionic assemblies. Although it focuses on the nanostructuring methodologies used to obtain organized materials, the discussion will also target the physical characterization of the functional materials for their implementation in prototypes.
