The growth and ordering of {5,10,15,20-tetrakis(4-bromophenyl)porphyrinato}nickel(II) (NiTBrPP) molecules on the Au(111) surface have been investigated using scanning tunneling microscopy, x-ray absorption, core-level photoemission and microbeam low-energy electron diffraction. When deposited onto the substrate at room temperature the NiTBrPP forms a(More)
Investigations of chemical bonding and electronic structure features for polycrystalline (porphyrinato)nickel (II) (NiP, the simplest Ni porphyrin), (5,10,15,20-tetraphenylporphyrinato)nickel (II) (NiTPP) and (2-aza-21-carba-5,10,15,20-tetraphenylporphyrinato)nickel (II) (N-confused NiTPP, NiNCTPP) have been performed by means of high-resolution soft x-ray(More)
The room temperature growth and ordering of (porphyrinato)nickel (II) (or nickel (II) porphine, NiP) molecules on a Ag(111) surface have been investigated using scanning tunnelling microscopy and low-energy electron diffraction (LEED). At a coverage of one monolayer, NiP molecules form a well-ordered molecular layer, having a hexagonal structure, on the(More)
The growth and ordering of 5-(10,15,20-triphenylporphyrinatonickel(ii))dimer (NiTPP-dimer) molecules on the Ag(111) surface have been investigated using scanning tunnelling microscopy/spectroscopy (STM/STS) and low-energy electron diffraction (LEED). At one monolayer (ML) coverage the NiTPP-dimer forms a well-ordered close-packed molecular layer in which(More)
2 1. Introduction Photochemistry of the porphyrins and their relatives has been largely inspired by photosynthetic processes in nature. As a result of this, most current studies generally utilize the chemistry of magnesium and zinc porphyrin analogues. Especially, magnesium tetrapyrrole chelates, i.e. magnesium porphyrins and phthalocyanines have found wide(More)
Oxygen binding and cleavage are important for both molecular recognition and catalysis. Mn-based porphyrins in particular are used as catalysts for the epoxidation of alkenes, and in this study the homolytic cleavage of O2 by a surface-supported monolayer of Mn porphyrins on Ag(111) is demonstrated by scanning tunneling microscopy, X-ray absorption, and(More)
A Ni-Cu ion exchange has been observed for (5,15-dibromo-10,20-diphenylporphyrinato)nickel(II) (NiDBrDPP) and (5,10,15,20-tetrakis(4-bromophenyl)porphyrinato)nickel(II) (NiTBrPP) on Cu(111). The ion exchange proceeds at a faster rate for the NiDBrDPP/Cu(111) system compared to NiTBrPP/Cu(111). This is explained in terms of the macrocycle-substrate distance(More)
The organization and thermal lability of chloro(5,10,15,20-tetraphenyl porphyrinato)manganese(III) (Cl-MnTPP) molecules on the Ag(111) surface have been investigated under ultra-high vacuum conditions, using scanning tunnelling microscopy, low energy electron diffraction and x-ray photoelectron spectroscopy. The findings reveal the epitaxial nature of the(More)
Porphyrins and chlorins such as Foscan® have a natural proclivity to accumulate in cancer cells. This trait has made them good candidates for photosensitizers and as imaging agents in phototherapy. In order to improve on cellular selectivity to lower post-treatment photosensitivity bile acid porphyrin bioconjugates have been prepared and investigated in(More)
Novel phenanthroline derivatives and their europium(III) and zinc(II) complexes have been prepared in up to 92 %. In contrast to the stable zinc complexes, the europium compounds exhibit a strong luminescence in THF solution and complete dissociation of the complexes back to free ligands in DMSO. 1 H NMR studies of the Eu(III)-complexes 5 and 6 also(More)
