Micro crystals with various morphologies have been successfully grown from readily accessible molecular platform [10,20-bis(2,6-dibutoxyphenyl)porphyrin]Sn(OH)2. Simple synthetic alteration makes this platform into various molecular building blocks using its axial coordination sites which trigger additional interactions and allow various crystal packing arrangements. We have demonstrated how apparently small modifications to building blocks can initiate significant changes in the morphologies and molecular packings of the corresponding solid state-state materials.
