Open and linked heteroleptic triple deckers (TD) based on porphyrin-phthalocyanineporphyrin order are investigated toward obtaining cage systems. They have potential applications in electronic devices such as molecular motion, switches, recognition, biomimetic chemistry, and nanoreactors. This model aims to increase the stability of phthalocyanine in that high order of assembly. Series of porphyrins were newly designed to investigate different routes to the cage system. The cage systems are found easily achievable though open and linked triple-deckers using lanthanum as a template for heteroleptic TD. The highest yield was achieved from linked TD through porphyrins’ dyad, but its preparation is a challenge. On the other hand, the instability of the TDs based on the rest of the lanthanides was a barrier to achieving caged models that encapsulated Pc.
