Abstract

Blazing saddles: A supramolecular conglomerate is formed by intermolecular hydrogen bonding between two saddle-distorted ZnII-phthalocyanine complexes coordinated by 4-pyridinecarboxylate and one doubly protonated saddle-distorted porphyrin dication. The assembly undergoes photoinduced intrasupramolecular electron transfer to generate an electrontransfer state with the lifetime of 667 ps. (Chemical Equation Presented).
