Abstract

Imidazole-porphyrin coordination has become an important tool in the design of self-assembled materials. A combination of spectrophotometric and stopped-flow techniques has been used to gain insight into the control of imidazole binding in the distal pocket of phenanthroline-strapped porphyrins. The binding studies of a variety of imidazole substrates in combination with both hindered and accessible receptors have permitted the determination of the thermodynamic and kinetic parameters associated with the imidazole binding.
