Abstract:

The observation of the molecular orientation of alkanoic acid-derivatized porphyrins in ultrathin films deposited on mica was carried out by atomic force microscopy. It was observed that the tetraacid derivative 5,10,15,20-tetra(N-10-carboxydecyl-pyridinium-4-yl) porphyrin was arranged as a monolayer with the porphyrin macrocycle oriented coplanar to the mica surface. On the other hand, the diacid derivative protoporphyrin IX Zn(II) formed a bilayer with the hydrophobic part inside and the hydrophilic part in the periphery. Therefore, in this case, the porphyrin macrocycle is roughly perpendicular to the mica surface.
