- This project involves the design, synthesis and photophysical study of complex molecular systems engineered to achieve long lived charge separated states by a biomimetic, photoinitiated multistep electron transfer process. The use of these artificial systems to investigate different electron and energy transfer strategies will allow the evolution of more efficient molecular devices for the gathering of light energy and its transformation into chemical potential energy. The three major aspects of the work emphasized in the initial proposal are: design and synthesis of molecular devices incorporating new quinone moieties, synthesis and spectroscopic studies of molecular tetrads and pentads featuring modified porphyrin-diquinone linkages, and new photochemical and photophysical investigations of tetrads and pentads, including the development of methods for harvesting the energy stored in long-lived charge separated states.
