Abstract

A pivotal guest role: A new porphyrin polymer, poly(PorZn·DD) (see picture, pink/purple), composed of a porphyrinatozinc and a porphyrin double-decker complex as a repeating unit was synthesized. In poly(PorZn·DD), porphyrinatozinc complexes recognize a divalent amine (tan/red) to induce an intramolecular pivoting motion through the rotation of porphyrin double-decker complexes and the polymer undergoes shortening and compaction.
