Tolyporphins are tetrapyrrole macrocycles produced by a cyanobacterium-containing culture known as HT-58-2. Tolyporphins A-J are free base dioxobacteriochlorins, whereas tolyporphin K is an oxochlorin. Here, the photophysical characterization is reported of tolyporphin A and two synthetic analogues, an oxobacteriochlorin and a dioxobacteriochlorin. The… CONTINUE READING
