Abstract

This thesis is focused on the generation of water soluble amphiphilic porphyrins for the creation of an artificial photosynthesis model. The development of functionalised porphyrins will allow for the molecules to be bound to protein maquettes and a study into energy and electron transfer undertaken. The investigation into these molecules will also allow for a study into porphyrin synthesis by flow chemistry and the creation of a water soluble porphyrin bound hydrogel.
