Abstract

Sequential electron transfer are the key steps which determine the efficiency of the energy conversion processes in photosynthesis. An attempt at modelling the active natural reaction centers in the membrane environment is presented. Various triads and one tetrad, made up of electron donor and electron acceptor molecules, have been synthesized and incorporated into lipid bilayers. Photoelectrochemical measurements evidence a vectorial intramolecular and transmembrane electron transfer. The influence of the structure of the compounds on the photocurrents is discussed.
