Excited State Dynamics of Conjugated Metalloporphyrins
The goal of this review is to highlight the unique and interesting aspects of conjugated metalloporphyrins. I will show the fundamental importance of these conjugated porphyrin systems by reviewing the excited state dynamics of some of the key systems that have been studied to date. The spectroscopic aspects I will be focusing on are the electronic absorption and emission and the transient absorption and emission. It is necessary to compare the ground and excited states in order to understand the significance of the excited state dynamics. Also important to discuss are the EPR and electrochemical data to further elucidate the unique qualities of conjugated porphryin oligomers.
