Abstract

Tetraarylporphyrins substituted with nitro groups at beta-pyrrolic positions are potential candidates for electron-accepting pigments in model systems for photosynthesis. The photophysics of 2-nitro-5,10,15,20-tetra-p-tolylporphyrin and its zinc analog have been studied in order to evaluate this potential. The ground state absorption spectrum, the triplet-triplet absorption spectrum, the fluorescence emission spectrum, and associated photophysical parameters have been determined. The molecules have short singlet lifetimes and anomalous temperature- and solvent-dependent emission spectra which are consistent with the formation of an intramolecular charge transfer state of the type P+.-NO2-. in which the nitro group is twisted about its bond to the porphyrin, relative to the ground state conformation.
