Porphyrin and metalloporphyrin systems are studied in all its aspects in my laboratory. We have synthesized various porphyrin systems and studied their chemical and structural properties. Recently, we have been focusing our efforts on the synthesis of oligomeric and polymeric metalloporphyrin systems. These systems have some interesting structural properties and we have concentrated on predicting the structural motifs of these multiporphyrin systems from the properties and structures of the monomeric systems. We have been able to synthesize dimers, trimers, tetramers, and polymers of metalloporphyrins. We also have a project involving the synthesis of systems that employ water-soluble porphyrins that can deliver multielectrons for the reduction of difficult to reduce molecules.
