Abstract : The basic objective of the research was to explore the possibilities of using porphin derivatives as model compounds in a study of structure-property and structure-reactivity relationships. The large number of porphyrin structures available, their wide range of chemical reactivity, their correspondingly wide range of interesting physical properties, and their fundamental biological importance recommended porphyrins as suitable materials for such a research program. Of particular interest were the electromagnetic properties of oriented films and crystals of these materials and their relationships to corresponding electrochemical parameters in solutions of these materials that are of biological interest.
