Magnesium porphyrins with relevance to chlorophylls


A review on the chemistry of magnesium porphyrins which have significant interest due to the relevance with chlorophyll molecules is presented with emphasis on bicarbonate adduct of magnesium porphyrin and chlorophyll. The chemistry of twenty six unique magnesium porphyrins is described as review articles on synthetic magnesium porphyrins are limited. Interest is given to the electron transfer reactions of magnesium porphyrins in artificial photosynthetic systems. The magnesium porphyrins are described considering coordination chemistry, structural aspects, electronic and electrochemical properties.
