A new supramolecular chirogenic system on the basis of tetrakis(nickel porphyrin) and various enantiopure solvents, which was specifically designed for investigation of the chirogenic phenomenon upon extremely weak interaction modes and marginal chiroptical responses, is reported. The temperature was found to be a key factor controlling the chirality transfer process in these assemblies.
