The substituted porphyrin 2-cyano-3-(2′-(5′,10′,15′,20-tetraphenyl porphyrinato zinc-(II))yl) acrylic acid was used to modify nanostructured Ag surfaces. This porphyrin-modified surface exhibits photocurrent when exposed to a light source, which is modulated in the presence of nucleotides. The addition of the nucleotides adenosine-5′-monophosphate (AMP), guanosine-5′-monophosphate (GMP) and cytidine-5′-monophosphate (CMP) causes partial quenching of the photoelectrochemical response of the porphyrin. The quenching efficiency is 80%, 68% and 48% for AMP, CMP and GMP, respectively. This work represents a new aspect of Ag NS substrates and highlights their usefulness as transducers a for potential chemosensor systems.
