Using a steric self-sorting strategy, the assembly of highly ordered and rigid supramolecular boxes possessing catalytic properties has been achieved in one step. The formation of these assemblies, comprising up to 18 porphyrin centers, was readily confirmed by solution X-ray scattering in conjunction with fluorescent spectroscopy. Size-selective and enantioselective oxidation catalysis were both demonstrated.
