A TTF-linked porphyrin dyad and its zinc complex have been synthesized as novel photosystems with a redox-active pendant. The two chromophores of these dyads are not interactive in the absorption spectra, but the fluorescence of the porphyrin chromophore is dramatically quenched by intramolecular electron transfer from the TTF pendant.
