Switching of Inter-Valence Charge Transfer in Stimuli-Responsive Bis(ferrocenyl)porphyrin

Abstract

Stimuli-responsive 5,15-bis(ferrocenyl)-10,20-bis(mesityl)porphyrin (BFP) was synthesized and used to demonstrate ON/OFF of inter-valence charge transfer (IVCT) between ferrocene terminals. IVCT was observed at 829 nm after protonation of BFP by gaseous hydrogen chloride. The protonation of the porphyrin core draw an electron from one of the two ferrocene units which makes the PBFP with mixed valence state. It was confirmed by Mossbauer spectroscopic technique. ON/OFF of IVCT was demonstrated by protonation and deprotonation of BFP successively with gaseous hydrogen chloride and ammonia.
