Abstract

The self-assembly of diprotonated phenyl and 4-sulfonatophenyl meso-tetrasubstituted porphyrins gives a spontaneous chiral symmetry breaking, but only for H2TPPS3, which forms helicoidal colloidal particles; the selection of the resulting chirality sign by the hydrodynamic forces of a stirring vortex can be demonstrated.
