Recent developments of supramolecular bar-shaped molecular architectures of porphyrins are widely described. The utilization of synthetic and supramolecular techniques enables one to effectively organize molecular aggregates, which possess light energy conversion functionalities such as light harvesting, charge separation, and carrier transport. In the photovoltaic and photocalytic (hydrogen evolution) measurements, these highly organized architectures quantitatively exhibit drastic enhancements of light energy conversion properties as compared to the reference non-organized system.
