Strong supramolecular binding of Li+@C60 with sulfonated meso-tetraphenylporphyrins and long-lived photoinduced charge separation

Author affiliations

Abstract

A supramolecular binding occurred between lithium ion encapsulated [60]fullerene (Li+@C60) and sulfonated tetraphenylporphyrins ([MTPPS]4− M = H2 and Zn) in a benzonitrile solution. Photoexcitation of Li+@C60/[MTPPS]4− results in formation of a long-lived charge-separated state by photoinduced electron transfer.
