dc.description.abstract Photoinduced electron transfer in intramolecularly interacting free-base porphyrin bearing one or four 18-crown-6 ether units at different positions of the porphyrin macrocycle periphery and pristine fullerene was investigated in polar benzonitrile and nonpolar o-dichlorobenzene and toluene solvents. Owing to the presence of two modes of binding, stable dyads were obtained in which the binding constants, K, were found to range between 4.2 x 10(3) and 10.4 x 10(3) M(-1) from fluorescence quenching data depending upon the location and number of crown ether entities on the porphyrin macrocycle and the solvent. Computational studies using the B3LYP/3-21G() method were employed to arrive at the geometry and electronic structure of the intramolecular dyads. The energetics of the redox states of the dyads were established from cyclic voltammetric studies. Under the intramolecular conditions, both the steady-state and time-resolved emission studies revealed efficient quenching of the singlet excited free-base porphyrin in these dyads, and the measured rates of charge separation, k(CS), were found to be in the 10(8)-10(9) s(-1) range. Nanosecond transient absorption studies were performed to characterize the electron-transfer products and to evaluate the charge-recombination rates. Shifting of the electron-transfer pathway from the intra- to intermolecular route was achieved by complexing potassium ions to the crown ether cavity(ies) in benzonitrile. This cation complexation weakened the intramolecular interactions between fullerene and the crown ether appended free-base porphyrin supramolecules, and under these conditions, intermolecular type interactions were mainly observed. Reversible inter- to intramolecular electron transfer was also accomplished by extracting the potassium ions of the complex with the addition of 18-crown-6. The present study nicely demonstrates the application of supramolecular methodology to control the excited-state electron-transfer path in donor-acceptor dyads. en_US
