Functional Monolayers with Coordinatively Embedded Metalloporphyrins Academic Article uri icon


  • Perpendicularly oriented iron porphyrins are absorbed onto a gold surface when interconnected long-chain diimidazolyl groups coordinate axially to the metal center from either side of the ring plane (see schematic representation). The stacking of the rings is simultaneously prevented. The monolayers have been characterized structurally and electrochemically.
