Abstract

Free-bases and a nickel(II) complex of phenothiazine-bridged cyclic porphyrin dimers bearing self-assembling 4-pyridyl groups (M2-Ptz- CPDPy(OCn); M = H2 or Ni, OCn = OC6 or OC3) at opposite meso-positions have been prepared as host molecules for fullerenes. The free-base dimer (H4-Ptz- CPDPy(OC6)) includes fullerenes with remarkably high association constants such as 3.9 ± 0.7 × 106 M -1 for C60 and 7.4 ± 0.8 × 107 M-1 for C70 in toluene. This C60 affinity is the highest value ever among reported receptors composed of free-base porphyrins. The nickel dimer (Ni2-Ptz-CPDPy(OC 6)) also shows high affinities for C60 (1.3 ± 0.2 × 106 M-1) and C70 (over 107 M-1). In the crystal structure of the inclusion complex of C 60 within H4-Ptz-CPDpy(OC3), the C60 molecule is located just above the centers of the porphyrins. The two porphyrin planes are almost parallel to each other and the center-to-center distance (12.454 Å) is close to the optimal separation (∼12.5 Å) for C60 inclusion. The cyclic porphyrin dimer forms a nanotube through its self-assembly induced by C-H⋯N hydrogen bonds between porphyrin β-CH groups and pyridyl nitrogens as well as π-π interactions of the pyridyl groups. The C60 molecules are linearly arranged in the inner channel of this nanotube.

This C60 affinity is the highest value ever among reported receptors composed of free-base porphyrins. The nickel dimer (Ni2-Ptz-CPDPy(OC 6)) also shows high affinities for C60 (1.3 ± 0.2 × 106 M-1) and C70 (over 107 M-1). In the crystal structure of the inclusion complex of C 60 within H4-Ptz-CPDpy(OC3), the C60 molecule is located just above the centers of the porphyrins. The two porphyrin planes are almost parallel to each other and the center-to-center distance (12.454 Å) is close to the optimal separation (∼12.5 Å) for C60 inclusion.
