Porphyrin based microscopic crystalline rods have been synthesized from mixed building blocks. Both pyridine and hydroxide are prerequisite functionalities to generate crystalline materials. Porphyrin building blocks containing just pyridyl or hydroxy groups do not interact themselves and the formation of amorphous solids is observed.
