Abstract
We have reported here the synthesis, structure and spectroscopic properties of the NiII–FeIII heterobimetallic ethene-bridged porphyrin dimer and investigate the effect upon step-wise one- and two-electron oxidations to produce a mixed-valence π–cation radical dimer and a dication diradical complex, respectively. We then investigate their electronic structure and spin coupling model and compare them with the corresponding homobimetallic analog. Detailed UV-vis-NIR, IR, and variable temperature magnetic studies and EPR and NMR spectroscopic investigations along with X-ray structure determination of the 2e-oxidized complex have demonstrated strong electronic communications through the bridge between two porphyrin π–cation radicals. The structure and geometrical parameters revealed the stabilization of the high-spin state of iron and the low-spin state of nickel in the 2e-oxidized complex. The extensive conjugation between the two porphyrin π–cation radicals has also altered the bridge from an ethylene to an exo-methylene moiety. Variable temperature magnetic studies of the 2e-oxidized complex revealed stronger antiferromagnetic coupling between two π–cation radical spins (Jr1–r2) of the NiII–FeIII heterodimer which is in sharp contrast to its diiron(III) analog where the porphyrin π–cation radical undergoes stronger antiferromagnetic coupling predominantly with the corresponding Fe(III) unpaired spin (JFe–r). The experimental observations are also strongly supported by DFT calculations.

A complete reversal of the spin state of iron(III) is observed upon a small change to the diporphyrin bridge from ethane to ethene by keeping all other factors intact. Combined analysis using single crystal X-ray structure determination, Mossbauer, variable-temperature magnetic, 1H NMR and EPR studies has confirmed the spin states of iron(III) complexes both in solid and solution phases.

: A bis(NiII -porphyrinyl)aminyl radical with meso-C6 F5 groups was prepared as a spin-delocalized stable aminyl radical with a doublet spin state. Upon addition of pyridine, both NiII centers became hexacoordinated by accepting two axial pyridines, which triggered a spin-state change of the NiII centers from diamagnetic (S=0) to paramagnetic (S=1). The resulting high-spin NiII centers interact with the aminyl radical ferromagnetically to give rise to an overall sextet state (S=5/2). Importantly...

We investigate here the effect of electronic communication between two Mn(III) porphyrin π-cation radicals, connected covalently through an ethylene bridge, which exhibit significant electronic communication resulting in strong antiferromagnetic coupling predominantly between two porphyrin radical spins. This, however, is in sharp contrast to its diiron(III) analog where the porphyrin π-cation radical undergoes stronger antiferromagnetic coupling predominantly with the corresponding Fe(III) unpa...

Abstract Multiheme cytochromes c are among the most fascinating molecular machineries evolved by Nature with essential functions in electron transfer and enzymatic catalysis. The multiheme architecture ensures fast intramolecular electron transfer over long distances. We explore here the structure-function relationship of the diheme cytochrome c (DHC2), the simplest member of such family, using a series of synthetic diheme analogs with a variety of imidazoles and pyridines as axial ligands which...

The family of multiheme proteins constitutes one of the fascinating molecular machineries designed by Nature to execute a large variety of functions. A high level of conservation among the structural arrangement of heme units is evident among various multiheme cytochromes. The relative arrangement of the heme centers and the intermacrocyclic interactions therein have been found to exhibit a major role in functional properties of such a widely distributed family. The existence of more than one he...

We explore here the structure–function relationship of the diheme cytochrome c using synthetic diheme analogs which serve as a convenient tool to investigate various aspects of Nature’s sophisticated design in vitro. A large series of diiron ethane-bridged porphyrin dimers, both in the oxidized and the reduced states, are synthesized and their structural, chemical, and electrochemical properties have been scrutinized. Interestingly, the iron-to-iron nonbonding separation observed in such dihemes...

This work reports a highly facile one-pot synthesis of a new series of fully π-conjugated unsymmetric chlorin-porphyrin heterodimers with quantitative yields by utilizing intermacrocyclic interactions. One-electron oxidations of dicopper(II) and dipalladium(II) porphyrin dimers using mild oxidants such as iodine at room temperature resulted in the formation of a strongly interacting cofacial mixed-valent π-cation radical dimers. The radical, being highly reactive, drives spontaneous and rapid tr...

For developing renewable fuels and controlling global warming, catalyst promoted conversion of CO2 to CO is essential. Numerous CO2 to CO conversion molecular catalysts have shown very high activity and stability. For large-scale conversion, immobilization of the molecular catalysts to conducting electrodes is essential. Several efficient molecular catalysts have been immobilized to conducting electrodes via physical bonds. We found that immobilization of a monolayer of the highly efficient Fe p...

Cis and trans-copper(II) porphyrin dimers have been synthesized in which two Cu(II) porphyrin macrocycles are bridged through a rigid ethene-linker for possible through-space and through-bond spin-couplings between the paramagnetic Cu(II) centers. It has been found that the two macrocycles come closer after 1e-oxidation which, however, move far apart upon further 1e-oxidation leading to transformation of the cis to trans isomer. Detailed investigations are performed here on the interactions betw...
