Porphyrin–hexaphyrin hybrid tapes

Author affiliations


A meso-meso linked porphyrin–hexaphyrin hybrid was synthesized by the cross condensation using meso-porphyrinyl-dipyrromethane and was oxidized with DDQ-Sc(OTf)3 to afford a porphyrin–[26]hexaphyrin hybrid tape that was reduced with NaBH4 to give a porphyrin–[28]hexaphyrin hybrid tape. Fully electronic conjugations in the hybrid tapes are observed in the UV/vis/NIR absorption spectra, electrochemistry, and excited-state dynamics.
