A bioinspired self assembled dimeric porphyrin pocket that binds electron accepting ligands

Author affiliations

Abstract

A binding pocket consisting of two zinc porphyrins self assembled by Watson-Crick base pairing is presented. The porphyrin binding pocket is located in the confined environment of a lipid membrane whereas the DNA is located in the water phase. Bidentate electron accepting ligands are shown to coordinate in-between the two porphyrins.
