Supramolecular triads were prepared by self-assembly of 4′-pyridyl-2-tetrathiafulvalene axially bound on ZnP-spacer-AuP + dyads; the lifetime of the charge separated state ( +TTF-ZnP-Spacer-AuP) formed upon light excitation of the triad is greatly increased with respect to that found in the parent dyad.
