Photoinduced charge transfer in a conformational switching chlorin dimer-azafulleroid in polar and nonpolar media.

In the present study, a biomimetic reaction center model, that is, a molecular triad consisting of a chlorin dimer and an azafulleroid, is synthesized and its photophysical properties are studied in comparison with the corresponding molecular dyad, which consists only of a chlorin monomer and an azafulleroid. As evidenced by (1) H NMR, UV/Vis, and… CONTINUE READING
