Photophysical properties and photoinduced electron transfer within host-guest complexes of 5,10,15,20-tetrakis(4-N-methylpyridyl)porphyrin with water-soluble calixarenes and cyclodextrins.


We report the formation of host-guest complexes between water-soluble calix[n]arene-p-tetrasulfonates (n = 4, 6, 8) or 2-hydroxypropyl-cyclodextrins (alpha-, beta-, gamma-) and the tetratosylate salt of 5,10,15,20-tetrakis(4-N-methylpyridyl)porphyrin (TMPyP). The binding constants ranging between 10(2) and 10(5) M-1 were calculated from the absorption and… (More)
