Novel tetraphenylporphyrin-subphthalocyanine conjugates have been prepared and characterized. An analysis of their optical spectroscopy and electronic structures using fluorescence emission and MCD spectroscopy and TD-DFT calculations, demonstrates that the two chromophores do not interact to any significant extent.
