Hydrogen bond driven self-assembled C2-symmetric chlorinsyn dimers; unorthodox models for chlorophyll ‘special pairs’ in photosynthetic reaction centres

Author affiliations

Abstract

Amide linked pyro-pheophorbidea dimers, equipped with a suitable length of linkage, assemble in non-polar solvents by internal hydrogen bonding into C2-symmetric stacked structures as evidenced by UV-vis, fluorescence, IR, CD, 1H NMR spectroscopy and DFT molecular modelling studies.
