Abstract The mesomorphic properties of cation water-soluble meso-substituted tetraphenylporphyrines and their metal complexes were studied. Out of 10 studied compounds, five compounds are mesomorphic in thermotropic state, six of them possess lyotropic mesomorphism in binary systems with water, chloroform and benzene.
Keywords: synthesis, mesomorphism, water soluble cation meso-substituted tetraphenylporphyrines, metal complexes
