21,23-Dithiaporphyrins were synthesized containing pi-extending ethynyl substituents at the meso positions. These porphyrins displayed highly bathochromic and broadened absorbance profiles spanning 400-900 nm with molar absorptivities ranging from 2500 to 300,000 M(-1) cm(-1). Electrochemically, these ethynyl dithiaporphyrins undergo a single oxidation at(More)
Three isomeric donor-acceptor (DA) chromophores based on pyrene were synthesized to study the effects of substitution pattern on intramolecular charge-transfer absorption through pyrene. These chromophores are nonfluorescent and absorb light in the long-wavelength region approaching 700 nm, making them promising light-harvesters. Their optical properties(More)
It is uncommon to read about cyanine dyes in the literature and not have their aggregation discussed. They are of high interest considering their propensity to undergo self-organization in aqueous solution, leading to interesting photophysical properties resulting from the formation of their dimers and higher ordered aggregates. Currently, the study of(More)
