The Synthesis of a D4h Symmetric Porphyrin Nanoball Using Selective Demetallation

Part of the Springer Theses book series (Springer Theses)


The synthesis of heterometallated zinc and magnesium porphyrin oligomers allowed selective demetallation to be used as a synthetic tool to prepare a 10-porphyrin nanoball. The T6 template and a rationally designed 10-legged T10 template were used to investigate the binding properties of the D4h symmetric structure by UV-Vis-NIR.
