Abstract : This report describes a number of related studies which center around the general theme of porphyrin photoreactivity. A number of the studies have focused especially on photoreactions of porphyrins and their metal complexes in organized or interfacial media such as micelles, vesicles or thin films. Reactions investigated have included metal ion incorporation, ligand photoejection, photoatropisomerization and photoxidation of porphyrins. The most extensively investigated reaction has been the last of these; this reaction has been extensively investigated in both solution and organized media with respect to products formed, efficiency of reaction and mechanisms involved.
