Abstract

A new platinum(II) porphyrin complex has been synthesized and characterized via various spectroscopic techniques. Single-crystal XRD analysis reveals that the geometry around the Pt(II) center is near the perfect square planar geometry. The Pt(II)−N bond distances are in the ranges of 2.005 Å–2.020 Å. The platinum(II) porphyrin derivative exhibited one reversible oxidative couple at +1.10 V and a reversible reductive couple at −1.47 V versus Ag/AgCl. In deaerated dichloromethane solution at 298 K, a strong phosphorescence is observed at 660 nm, with emission quantum yield of 35 % and lifetime of 75 μs. Upon excitation of the acenaphthene chromophores at 300 nm, sensitised phosphorescence of the Pt(II) porphyrin is observed with a unitary efficient energy transfer, demonstrating that this system behaves as a light harvesting antenna. The red phosphorescence is strongly quenched by oxygen, resulting in singlet oxygen production with a very high quantum yield of 88 %. This result indicates that this Pt(II) porphyrin is an excellent photosensitizer for the production of singlet oxygen and will have potential applications in the field of photodynamic therapy as well as oxygen sensors.
