    Abstract

    The synthesis of a series of four porphyrin derivatives based on a meso-tetrafluorenylporphyrin core functionalized with one to four trans-chlorobis(dppe)ruthenium alkynyl units (dppe = 1,2-bis(diphenylphosphino)ethane) at the periphery, together with cyclic voltammetry (CV) and UV–Vis absorption and emission spectroscopy studies, are reported. In these multipolar assemblies, the organoruthenium endgroups are potential electron-donors and the central porphyrin core is a potential electron-acceptor. The third-order nonlinear optical (NLO) responses have been assessed by Z-scan, revealing that these extended π-networks incorporating polarizable organometallic units behave as nonlinear absorbers in the near-IR range. The role of the peripheral transition metal centers on the third-order NLO properties is discussed.
