Abstract

Amphiphilic (porphyrin)Sn(OH)2 molecular building block can directly translate into well-defined solid-state micro-crystalline structures. The crystalline diamond plates are obtained from ethanol and crystalline square plates are grown from methanol solution. With a simple synthetic manipulation during the microcrystal growth, the morphologies can be controlled by adopting different molecular packing. Consequently, morphologies of microcrystals have been diversified. Furthermore, the macroscopic crystals were obtained in the presence of cetyltrimethylammonium bromide (CTAB).
