Three new tripyridyl tripodal ligands appended with either fullerene or pyromellitdiimide moieties, named C(60)-s-Tripod, C(60)-l-Tripod, and PI-Tripod, were synthesized and introduced into a porphyrin macroring N-(1-Zn)(3) (where 1-Zn = trisporphyrinatozinc(II)). From UV-vis absorption and fluorescence titration data, the binding constants of C(60)-s… CONTINUE READING
