A C84 selective porphyrin macrocycle with an adaptable cavity constructed through alkyne metathesis

Abstract

A bisporphyrin macrocycle was constructed from a porphyrin-based diyne monomer in one step through alkyne metathesis. The fullerene binding studies (C60, C70 and C84) showed the highest binding affinity of the macrocycle for C84, which is in great contrast to its bisporphyrin four-armed cage analogue that showed the strongest binding with C70.
