Abstract

A free base porphyrin dimer bridged by a flexible amide-bonded xanthene moiety and its binuclear zinc(II) complex zinc(II) complex were synthesized and characterized. Structural characterization by MS and <sup>1</sup>H NMR spectroscopy confirmed the bridged porphyrin dimer structure. The properties of the dimers were characterized by IR, UV-visible absorption, fluorescence and magnetic circular dichroism (MCD) spectroscopy, and electrochemistry studies. Theoretical calculations were carried out to analyze the electronic structures of porphyrin dimers with a bridging amide-bonded xanthene moiety.
