Abstract

Multiple photosynthetic reaction centres have successfully been constructed using supramolecular complexes of zinc porphyrin dendrimers [D(ZnP)n: n = 4, 8, 16] with fulleropyrrolidine bearing a pyridine ligand (C60py). Efficient energy migration occurs completely between the ZnP units of dendrimers prior to the electron transfer with increasing the generation of dendrimers to attain an extremely long charge–separation lifetime.
