Water-soluble 5-(4`-aminophenyl)-10,15,20-tris(4`-sulfophenyl)porphine was obtained by three-stage synthesis from tetraphenylporphyrin under conditions of supramolecular control of regioselectivity of nitration and sulfonation reactions. In acidic medium (pH ≈ 2) the trianion H2P(PhNH2)(PhSO3)3 is protonated at the porphyrin platform and the amino group to form the aqua complex of the zwitterion [H4P2+(PhNH3)(PhSO3H)(PhSO3)2](H2O)2 , which is self-assembled into porphyrin nanotubes (PNTs), the outer surface of which is covered with positively charged groups -PhNH3+, and the inner surface with electroneutral groups -PhSO3H. By the action of nitrous acid, stable diazotized PNTs were obtained. Supramolecular self-assembly inhibits the azo coupling reaction of H4P2+(PhN2+)(PhSO3H)(PhSO3)2 tectons with H-acid in an acidic medium. H-Conjugate was obtained by azo coupling in an alkaline medium (pH ≈ 10), where diazotized PNTs are destroyed with formation of the diazocompound H2P(PhN2+)(PhSO3)3. The resulting product was characterized by 1H NMR, MS MALDI-TOF and UV-Vis spectra.
