    With the aim of achieving supramolecular structures containing dyes with controlled state of aggregation, the formation of ternary complexes between 5,10,15,20-tetrakis-(4-sulfonatophenyl)-porphyrin, poly(decylviologen), and sulfobutylether-β-cyclodextrin at low excess of the cyclodextrin is described. By controlling the stoichiometry of the reactants, both non-fluorescent H-aggregates of the dye and stabilized fluorescent monomers may be obtained. The dye undergoes self-aggregation in the presence of the flexible, cationic polymer, and by addition of the negatively charged cyclodextrin the aggregates are cleaved. The cyclodextrin primarily induces the inclusion of 5,10,15,20-tetrakis-(4-sulfonatophenyl)-porphyrin in its cavity, and the ensemble is stabilized by the polymer by means of electrostatic, hydrophobic, and/or aromatic-aromatic interactions. The ternary complex thus produced tends to nanofiber formation, as seen by FE-TEM.
