ARAKI, Koiti  and  TOMA, Henrique Eisi. Chemistry of supramolecular systems containing porphyrins and metal complexes. Quím. Nova [online]. 2002, vol.25, n.6a, pp. 962-975. ISSN 0100-4042.

Supramolecular chemistry is expected to keep a high developing pace in the next years, giving support to the advancement of molecular devices and nanotechnology. In this sense, porphyrins and their analogues should play a significant role as a consequence of their catalytic, electrocatalytic, photochemical and photoelectrochemical properties. In this review we focused on our own strategy based on coordination chemistry for the design and build-up of supermolecules and supramolecular structures constituted by polynuclear porphyrins and metalloporphyrins. Included are also their properties and potential applications.

Keywords : supramolecular chemistry; polynuclear porphyrins; electrocatalysis.
