A photoswitchable supramolecular complex with release-and-report capabilities

Author affiliations

Abstract

A self-assembled supramolecular platform has been designed for reversibly controlling the concentration of a compound in solution, via a photochemical reaction. The system utilizes metal–ligand interactions between a Zn-porphyrin dimer and a pyridine-appended dithienylethene (DTE) photoswitch. In addition to reversible compound release, the spectral properties of the release scaffold provide a fluorescence-based reporting function.
