Abstract

Photosynthetic reaction center models consisting of zinc 9-desoxo-pyrochlorophyllide, a primary electron donors, ZC, that are directly bonded at their 3-position to the 5-position of a 2,8,12,18,-tetraethyl-37,13,17,-tetramethylporphyrin, ZP, which in turn bonded at its 15-position to 2-triptycenenaphthoquinone, 2-triptycenebenzoquinone, 1-triptycenebenzoquinon, are prepared. Steric hindrance between adjacent substituents positions the system of the chlorophyll is held about 60° to that of the O-O axis of the quinones, parallel to the quinone O-O axis and parallel to the N-N axis in the diimide acceptor. The resulting structures place the ZC donors at fixed center-to-center distances of 20, 18, 14 and 21 angstrom from the acceptors respectively.
