Synthesis of novel diselenide-linked porphyrin dimers under phase-transfer catalysis condition and their interactions with DNA
Novel diselenide-linked porphyrin dimers were synthesized under phase-transfer catalysis conditions. The targeted compounds were characterized by 1H-NMR, high-resolution mass spectrometry, UV/VIS and fluorescence spectroscopies, redox-potential measurements, and elemental analysis. The interaction of the title compounds with DNA was studied using UV/VIS, fluorescence, and circular dichroism (CD) spectroscopies. The relative rates of singlet-oxygen production from the diselenide-linked porphyrin dimers upon photoirradiation were also measured. © 2009 Verlag Helvetica Chimica Acta AG.
