Abstract

Cobalt(II) meso-tetrakis(4-hexadecylamidophenyl)porphyrin self-assembles in ethanol/1-propanol 2/1 (v/v) to form a rodlike micelle with nanoscale dimensions; the nanorod is a face-to-face aggregate having a hydrophobic corona around a polar core and is thus characterized as a reverse micelle.
