Abstract

Reversible switching between intra- to intermolecular electron transfer paths has been accomplished by adding and extracting potassium ions to the supramolecular porphyrin-fullerene conjugates formed by complexing porphyrin functionalized with a benzo-18-crown-6 entity and fullerene functionalized with an alkylammonium cation entity.
