Abstract

A novel porphyrin derivative 1∙Zn was synthesised in order to mimic the self-assembly properties of natural light-harvesting antennas and its self-assembly behaviour in solution and in solid state were studied by NMR and X-Ray spectroscopies. The self-assembly of this molecule was triggered in apolar solvents and studied in solution by UV-Vis spectroscopy, suggesting it is able to form slipped face-to-face aggregates, or J-aggregates. The nanoscopic and microscopic morphology of the aggregates was elucidated by atomic force microscopy, revealing the formation of extended two-dimensional structures.
