The thermodynamic stability of diprotonated saddle-distorted dodecaphenylporphyrin (H4DPP2+(X-)2) was controlled by the hydrogen-bonding strength of conjugate bases (X-) of strong acids (HX) or acids (R+-COOH) having positively charged moieties. The thermodynamic control of H4DPP2+(X-)2 made it possible to achieve selective formation of supramolecular hetero-triads, H4DPP2+(X-)(Cl-).
