  • Artificial photosynthetic systems for solar energy conversion exploit both covalent and supramolecular chemistry to produce favorable arrangements of light-harvesting and redox-active chromophores in space. An understanding of the interplay between key processes for photosynthesis, namely light-harvesting, energy transfer, and photoinduced charge separation and the design of novel, self-assembling components capable of these processes are imperative for the realization of multifunctional integrated systems. We report our investigations on the potential of extended tetracationic cyclophane/perylene diimide systems as components for artificial photosynthetic applications. We show how the selection of appropriate heterocycles, as extending units, allows for tuning of the electron accumulation andmore » photophysical properties of the extended tetracationic cyclophanes. Spectroscopic techniques confirm energy transfer between the extended tetracationic cyclophanes and perylene diimide is ultrafast and quantitative, while the heterocycle specifically influences the energy transfer related parameters and the acceptor excited state.« less
  • The photophysical properties of an oblique bisporphyrin, comprising zinc(II) and gold (III) porphyrins separated by a 2,7-diphenyl-1,10-phenanthroline spacer moiety, have been measured in a low-temperature ethanol glass. Comparison with the properties recorded earlier in fluid, polar solution indicates that the energy of the intermediate charge-transfer state (CTS), formed by electron transfer from zinc porphyrin to appended gold porphyrin, is increased by 0.75 eV upon freezing. This is due to a substantial decrease in the static dielectric constant of the solvent which occurs upon moving from a fluid solution to a frozen glass. There is a corresponding decrease in the solventmore » reorganization energy upon freezing, and, at 77 K, both the reorganization energy and the reaction exergonicity are essentially zero. The rate of formation of the CTS at 77 K is much slower than that predicted for a superexchange mechanism unless there is a change in the molecular architecture upon freezing. Formation of an intermediate CTS has been confirmed by low-temperature EPR studies. The gold porphyrin excited triplet state is unable to abstract an electron from the appended zinc porphyrin, and, instead, quantitative intramolecular triplet energy transfer takes place. 51 refs., 11 figs., 3 tabs.« less
  • Diels-Alder reactions between C{sub 60} and selected dienes yield {open_quotes}ball-and-chain{close_quotes} compounds bearing multiple chromophores rigidly bound through a saturated polynorbornane-bicyclo[2.2.0] hexane hydrocarbon bridge. Molecular mechanics, semiempirical, and ab initio calculations were invoked along with X-ray crystallography in the study of conformations of these compounds. The aim of these studies is to prepare well-characterized compounds for the study of intermolecular electron and/or energy transfer. 41 refs., 5 figs., 3 tabs.
  • Intramolecular electron transfer has been observed to have occurred in less than 100 ns in a steroid molecule having two distinct electron binding groups separated by distances distributed from 7--11 A. Experiments were carried out in organic glasses at 77 K with pulse radiolysis techniques to create trapped electrons which were captured by a group on one end of the steroid molecule. Although one of the groups, benzoate, is held to the steroid spacer by a flexible linkage, the rigidity of the glassy matrices prevented movement to alter the initial distance. Interestingly, no effects of distance were seen: all ETmore » processes appeared to have occurred much faster than our 100 ns time resolution, consistent with measurements of the rate of intermolecular electron transfer between the same functional groups in random solutions. Solvation energetics, on the other hand, had a remarkable influence on the extent and direction of electron transfer. A change in solvent polarity was observed to reverse the direction of electron transfer. Evidence was obtained for a distribution of solvation environments for ions in glasses which may be as broad as 0.15 eV.« less
