Complexation-decomplexation equilibria between boronic-acid-appended porphyrins and naphthalenedisulfonates or anthraquinonedisulfonates can be efficiently controlled by the addition of saccharides: this finding is readily applied to the saccharide-control of photoinduced electron-transfer processes.
