Abstract

We demonstrate the design and formation of thin films having divergent physicochemical properties by using two porphyrin building blocks with high chemical and optical resemblance. A predetermined variation in the molecular design is efficiently transferred and enhanced when constituting a two-dimensional film via control of molecular orientation. Variations of the peripheral substituents on the porphyrin ring resulted in control of the molecular orientation at the surface.
