Self-assembled porphyrin arrays via zinc-nitrogen coordination

Journal Article


Abstract


  • A series of alkene linked multiporphyrin zinc complexes have been synthesized and their ability to self-assemble in the presence of either 4,4-bipyridine or DABCO has been investigated. It was found that the sandwich complexes with 4,4-bipyridine proceeded via an intermediary 1:1 complex, whereas the sandwich complexes with DABCO formed discrete complexes. Further additions of an excess of DABCO lead to exchange from within the complex. © Springer 2005.
