Porphyrins Run Rings Around Each Other
A pair of nanorings, one sitting inside the other, fit together like perfectly nested Russian dolls. The structure is not only strikingly beautiful but could offer a useful model for studying energy transfer within natural photosynthetic complexes. It also demonstrates how large nanorings can be built from components that self-assemble onto a smaller, template ring (J. Am. Chem. Soc. 2015, DOI: 10.1021/jacs.5b07956).
“Energy migration between rings is . . .
