Abstract

5,10,15,20-Tetrakis(4-boronylphenyl)porphyrin (1) and 5, 10,15,20-tetrakis[N-(2- or 4-boronylphenyl)methyl-pyridinium] porphyrin (o-2 or p-2) formed a 1:1 complex, which gave specific exciton-coupling bands in CD spectroscopy only in the presence of glucose and xylose among monosaccharides. The structural examination established that only these monosaccharides can bridge two porphyrins by covalent-bond formation with boronic acids and twist them asymmetrically.
