Selective complexation of di-n-hexylammonium salts by tailed porphyrin host

Author affiliations

Abstract

Novel types of tailed porphyrins have been synthesized and characterized. The tail was coordinated intramolecularly to zinc porphyrin, leading to the formation of a cavity. In the cavity, tailed porphyrins formed a complex with di-n-hexylammonium salts. The binding affinities of the tailed porphyrins were studied by 1H NMR and UV-visible titration experiments. The selectivity of complexation was attributed to the induced fit and lipophilic interactions.
