The effect of axial coordination of pyridine derivatives to the core porphyrin on the fullerene encapsulation of the 4th generation carbazole–phenylazomethine dendrimer (ZnPG2-2) was investigated. The axial coordination of large (bulky) pyridine derivatives affects the cavity in an allosteric manner, and the size-selectivity of the fullerene association could be controlled.
