Abstract

The macrotetracyclic and macropentacyclic compounds (1)-(3), which combine porphyrin rings and [18]-N2O4 aza-oxamacrocycles as substrate selective binding subunits, complex diammonium ions +H 3N-[CH2]n-NH3+ (anchored to the [18]-N2O4 sites and included in the central molecular cavity), and/or Zn11 ions (bound to the porphyrin groups), thus yielding organic/inorganic mixed substrate supramolecular structures.
