The formation conditions and the structure of J-aggregates of meso-tetra(4-sulfonathophenyl) porphine (TPPS4) were under investigation. It was shown that the J-aggregates are a natural form of aggregated dianions (H2+P(SO3-)4) of TPPS4 molecules.

It is shown, that one of the possible reasons for the formation of J-aggregates in acidic solutions is the interaction between the negatively charged sulphonato- groups and the positively charged central part of the porphyrin ring.

The structural model of J-aggregate was built on the basis of X ray diffraction and atomic force microscopy data.
