A metal-lustrous porphyrin foil

Author affiliations


A metal-lustrous self-standing film, named “porphyrin foil”, was formed from a glass-forming polymeric porphyrin. The amorphous glass nature of the porphyrin foil played a key role in spontaneously producing a smooth surface. Its sharp contrast in intense absorption and specular reflection of light at each wavelength provided a brilliant metallic lustre.
