|Abstract||The unsatd. cyclic [M3(dppm)3(CO)]2+ clusters (M = Pt, Pd; dppm = Ph2P-CH2PPh2; such as PF6- salt) exhibit a cavity formed by the six dppm-Ph groups placed like a picket fence above the unsatd. triangular M3 dicationic center. Electrostatic interactions of the M3+ units inside this cavity with the carboxylate anion RCO2- [R = tetraphenylporphyrinatozinc(II), ZnTPP; p-phenyltritolylporphyrinatozinc(II), ZnTTPP; p-phenyltritolylporphyrinatopalladium(II), PdTTPP] form dyads for through-space triplet energy transfers. The binding consts. are âˆ¼20,000 M-1 in all six cases (298 K). The energy diagram built upon absorption and emission spectra at 298 and 77 K places the [Pt3(dppm)3(CO)]2+ and [Pd3(dppm)3(CO)]2+ as triplet energy donors, resp., with respect to the ZnTPPCO2-, ZnTTPPCO2-, and PdTTPPCO2- pigments, which act as acceptors. Evidence for energy transfer is provided by the transient absorption spectra at 298 K, where triplet-triplet absorption bands of the metalloporphyrin chromophores are depicted at all time (at 298 K) with total absence of the charge-sepd. state in the nanosecond to microsecond time scale. Rates for energy transfer (ranging in the 104 s-1 time scale) are extd. from the emission lifetimes of the [Pt3(dppm)3(CO)]2+ donor in the free chromophore and the host-guest assemblies. The emission intensity of [Pd3(dppm)3(CO)]2+ is too weak to measure its spectrum and emission lifetime in the presence of the strongly luminescent metalloporphyrin-contg. materials. For the [Pd3(dppm)3(CO)]2+Â·Â·Â·metalloporphyrin dyads, evidence for fluorescence and phosphorescence lifetime quenching of the porphyrin chromophore at 298 K is provided. These quenchings, exhibiting rates of 104 (triplet) and 108 s-1 (singlet), are attributed to a photoinduced electron transfer from the metalloporphyrin to the cluster due to the low redn. potential.
