This paper describes the selective formation of a cyclic tetramer from a readily synthesized metalloporphyrin with two self-complementary quadruple hydrogen-bonding units. The extremely strong quadruple hydrogen-bonding unit, 2-ureido-4[1H]-pyrimidinone, enabled the formation of a stable cyclic tetramer based on a tetraphenylporphyrin derivative over a wide concentration range. This hydrogen-bonded tetramer is a new functional unit for use in a higher-ordered architecture of a supramolecular porphyrin assembly.
