Self-assembly and template-directed synthesis in multi-strand porphyrin arrays

Abstract:

This thesis describes the use of supramolecular chemistry in self-assembling systems based on pyridyl porphyrins and porphyrin nanorings. Pyridine substituted porphyrins are used as ligands to bind to Zn porphyrin nanorings in systems reminiscent of the light harvesting complexes in nature. The study of energy transfer in such complexes gives insight into the efficiency of the natural systems. This thesis also illustrates the scope of classical and Vernier templating as an alternative ...
