Energy funneling of IR photons captured by dendritic antennae and acceptor mode specificity: Anti-stokes resonance Raman studies on iron(III) porphyrin complexes with a poly(aryl ether) dendrimer framework
A series of poly(aryl ether) dendrimer chloroiron(III) porphyrin complexes (LnTPP)Fe(III)Cl (number of aryl layers [n] = 3 to 5) were synthesized, and their Boltzmann temperatures under IR irradiation were evaluated from ratios of Stokes to anti-Stokes intensities of resonance Raman bands. While the Boltzmann temperature of neat solvent was unaltered by IR irradiation (LTPP)Fe(III)Cl (n = 3 to 5), all showed a temperature rise that was larger than that of the solvent and greater as the dendrimer framework was larger. Among vibrational modes of the metalloporphyrin core, the temperature rise of an axial Fe-Cl stretching mode at 355 cm(-1) was larger than that for a porphyrin in-plane mode at 390 cm(-1). Although most of the IR energy is captured by the phenyl nu(8) mode at 1597 cm(-1) of the dendrimer framework, an anti-Stokes Raman band of the phenyl nu(8) mode was not detected, suggesting the extremely fast vibrational relaxation of the phenyl mode. From these observations, it is proposed that the energy of I R photons captured by the aryl dendrimer framework is transferred to the axial Fe-Cl bond of the iron porphyrin core and then relaxed to the porphyrin macrocycle.
