摘要：Two novel sandwich-type mixed (phthalocyaninato)(porphyrinato) rare earth double-decker complexes with decreased molecular symmetry of Cs M(Pc)[D(NHC(8)H(17))(2)PP] [M = Eu, Lu; Pc = unsubstituted phthalocyaninate; D(NHC(8)H(17))(2)PP = 5,10-di(phenyl)-15,20-di(4-octylamino-phenyl)porphyrinate] (1, 2) have been designed, prepared, and characterized. The single crystal and molecular structure of the Eu analogue has been determined by X-ray diffraction analysis, revealing the head-to-tail supramolecular chains formed from closely bound double-decker molecules depending on the N-H-N hydrogen bonds between one octyl-substituted amidocyanogen group attached at the p-position of meso-attached phenyl group of the porphyrin ligand in the mixed ring double-decker molecule and one aza-nitrogen atom of the phthalocyanine ring in the neighboring double-decker molecule in a zigzag form. Their self-assembled nano-structures have been investigated by transmission electronic microscopy (TEM) and scanning electronic microscopy (SEM). Intermolecular H-N-H hydrogen bonding interaction leads to the formation of nano-structures with fusiform morphology with 220-250 nm average width and about 10 mm length for 1 and 300 nm width and 3-5 mu m length for 2, respectively, revealing the effect of molecular size in the direction perpendicular to the tetrapyrrole ring on the dimensions of self-assembled nano-structures.
