Porphyrins with a carbosilane dendrimer periphery as synthetic components for supramolecular self-assembly.

The preparation of the shape-persistent carbosilane-functionalized porphyrins H2TPP(4-SiRR'Me)4, Zn(II)-TPP(4-SiRR'Me)4 (R = R' = Me, CH2CH=CH2, CH2CH2CH2OH; R = Me, R' = CH2CH=CH2, CH2CH2CH2OH; TPP = tetraphenyl porphyrin), H2TPP(4-Si(C6H4-1,4-SiRR'Me)3)4, and Zn(II)-TPP(4-Si(C6H4-1,4-SiRR'Me)3)4 (R = R' = Me, CH2CH=CH2; R = Me, R' = CH2CH[double bond… CONTINUE READING
