Conjugated porphyrin arrays: synthesis, properties and applications for functional materials

Conjugated porphyrin arrays that possess delocalised electronic networks have, for the most part, been assembled by using alkene or alkyne type bridging units or by directly connecting individual porphyrin chromophores with multiple bonds to form fused porphyrin arrays.

About this collection

Chemical Society Reviews is delighted to present its themed issue on molecular wires. This issue will sample recent progress in a broad area relating to synthetic, electronic, electro-chemical and optical properties of molecular wires. The issue combines tutorial reviews with standard reviews to illustrate the functionality of molecular wires as building blocks to organic based electronic and photonic devices. The issue is guest edited by Dirk Guldi, Hiroshi Nishihara and Latha Venkataraman. New articles will be added to this collection as they are published.
