The self-assembly of amphiphilic (porphyrin)Sn 1 in an aqueous Pluronic F127 media results in the formation of narrowly dispersed nanowires. Variation of aqueous Pluronic concentrations allows for a systematic variation of porphyrin nanowire lengths while keeping their widths constant. These nanowires can be further assembled into secondary macroscopic columns.
