Porphyrins and related macrocycles provide an extremely versatile nanometer sized synthetic component for a variety of materials applications. The exploration of porpfyrins and metalloporphyrins molecules as building blocks for tailored materials has found rapid growth during the last decade. Films, solids, microporous solids have been explored as field-responsive materials. Assembling molecular functional components into supramolecular architecture is envisioned to yield artificial devices of technological relevance, such as sensors, molecular sieves, energy cells.
