Ring-annulated Porphyrins for Photochemical Upconversion


Ring annulation of the pyrrolic rings of porphyrins leads to very
interesting compounds that behave as ¦Ð-expanded systems. We previously
synthesised tetrakis(quinoxalino)porphyrins, porphyrins that are expanded in
four directions; for example, Pd(II) tetrakisquinoxalinoporphyrin 2 from the
porphyrin 1 by three different routes (Scheme 1).1  These syntheses and
extrapolation of this methodology which allows synthesis of
tetrakis(diaza-anthraceno)porphyrins and other ¦Ð-expanded porphyrin systems
will be described in detail.

Upconversion is the process whereby a stream of light of a given photon
energy is converted into one of a higher energy. Very efficient red to
yellow light upconversion is achieved by triplet-triplet annihilation using
the palladium ¦Ð-expanded porphyrins as sensitizer molecules and rubrene as
the emitter molecule We have demonstrated TTA efficiencies estimated at 60%,
far in excess of the statistical 11.1% limit of singlet formation.2 I will
also report red to green, red to blue, and green to blue upconversion using
other emitters.
