Uniform monodisperse nanospheres of tetra-kis(4-methoxylphenyl) porphynatemanganese (III) chloride [MnIII(TMOPP)Cl] of about 200 nm have been synthesized through a facile surfactant-assisted reprecipitation method at room temperature. Scanning electron microscopy, transmission electron microscope, infrared spectrum, ultraviolet–visible spectrum, and elemental analysis were adopted to characterize the as-prepared metalloporphyrin nanostructures. The influence factors in the reaction to the sizes and morphologies of porphyrin nanoparticles were discussed. The sizes of porphyrin nanoparticles were affected mainly by the porphyrin concentration and only monodisperse nanoshperes with high uniformity in sizes and shapes can self-assemble to form order two-dimensional superstructures.
