Abstract

Effiziente Kommunikation: An ein biomimetisches Modell des aktiven Zentrums von Fe-Hydrogenasen wurde erstmals ein Porphyrin-Photosensibilisator angehängt (siehe Bild). Das Fluoreszenzspektrum dieses strukturell charakterisierten Systems belegt eine effiziente elektronische Kommunikation zwischen dem Porphyrin und der kovalent angebundenen Dieisenazadithiolat-Einheit.
