Photophysical and Photochemical Studies on Open-Chain Tetrapyrrole Complexes
This project will focus on the coordination chemistry and redox reactivity of
linear oligopyrrole complexes and their precursor compounds in the context of
natural and biomimetic systems related to bilirubin, biliverdin and carbon
monoxide releasing biomolecules.
Included are synthesis, spectroscopic characterization, electrochemical and
photochemical investigation of novel metal complexes and their potential
application in redox catalysis and molecular photomedicine.
