Study of spectral behaviour and optical properties of cis/trans-bis(N-methylpyridinium-4-yl)diphenyl porphyrin adsorbed on layered silicates

, : Study of spectral behaviour and optical properties of cis/trans-bis(N-methylpyridinium-4-yl)diphenyl porphyrin adsorbed on layered silicates. Journal of Colloid and Interface Science 360(1): 26-30

The spectral properties of two dicationic porphyrins, cis- and trans-bis(N-methylpyridinium-4-yl)diphenyl porphyrins, upon adsorption on clay mineral templates were investigated. A series of reduced charge Nanocor montmorillonites was used as host templates. The main impact was given on the influence of the layer charge on the absorption and fluorescence spectra. Adsorption of the porphyrins led to significant changes in their spectra but preserved the photoactivity of the dyes. The changes can be attributed to two phenomena: structural changes (flattening) of the porphyrin molecules and molecular aggregation. Latter one was more influenced by the molecular structure of the dyes and influenced the properties of mainly trans-isomer. The formation of the assemblies was significantly influenced by the layer charge of montmorillonite template. This study presents the example how one is able to influence the spectral properties and possibly also the functionality of adsorbed photoactive molecules via a strategy of appropriate combination of a photoactive component with specific inorganic templates.
