Inside Cover: A Discrete Supramolecular Conglomerate Composed of Two Saddle-Distorted Zinc(II)-Phthalocyanine Complexes and a Doubly Protonated Porphyrin with Saddle Distortion Undergoing Efficient Photoinduced Electron Transfer (Angew. Chem. Int. Ed. 35/2008)
A supramolecular conglomerate composed of a saddle-distorted, diprotonated porphyrin dication and two saddle-distorted zinc(II)–phthalocyanine complexes (see picture) is described by T. Kojima et al. in their Communication on page 6712 ff. The conglomerate undergoes photoinduced electron transfer from the zinc(II)-phthalocyanine to the porphyrin dication to generate an electron-transfer state with a lifetime of 667 ps.
