Abstract

A catenated heme cofactor consisting of a donor (protoheme), a sensitizer (Ru(2,2'-bipyridine)3) and an acceptor (cyclobis(paraquat-p-phenylene) was prepared by stepwise coordination, followed by iron-insersion. Reconstitution of apomyoglobin with this cofactor afforded a protein-based, noncovalently-1 inked photosynthetic triad.
