The detection of magnetochiral dichroism (MChD; CD: circular dichroism) in a suspension of J-aggregate particles of an achiral amphiphilic nonmetalated porphyrin renews the interest for porphyrins in supramolecular chemistry and reinforces the concept that novel advanced materials can be obtained through self-assembly and auto-organization processes (see picture).
