A new strategy to control the orientation and aggregation numbers of porphyrins by alignment along well-defined templates has been demonstrated. Porphyrin-bridged bisPYBOX ligands were arranged along the oligomeric secondary dialkylammonium cations as templates to form well-defined supramolecular complexes. The templates controlled the aggregations of the porphyrins.
