Self-assembled structures formed from a pyridine-appended zinc chlorophyll derivative are reported. While the zinc complex forms cyclic oligomers in chloroform solution, as indicated by 1H NMR studies (including diffusion-ordered spectroscopy), vapor pressure osmometry, and cold-spray ionization mass spectrometry, it forms double-stranded helical coordination polymers in the solid state, as revealed by single-crystal X-ray analysis.
