Abstract

(Alkanephosphocholine-porphinato)zinc forms a geometrically well-defined bilayer liposome with phospholipid. Electron transfer from the liposome-embedded (porphinato)zincs with different alkyl chain lengths to methylviologen present in the outer bulk solution is measured by laser flash photolysis: the intermolecular electron transfer was observed only when the porphyrin plane is located within 12 Å from the surface.
