This work describes the design of a modified porphyrin that bears four furan rings linked by 1,2-bis-(2-aminoethoxy)ethane spacers. This unit is a well-suited scaffold for a Diels–Alder reaction with commercial reduced-graphene oxide, which is also described in this paper. A new hybrid material is obtained, thanks to efficient grafting under microwave irradiation, and fully characterized in terms of structure (UV, TGA, Raman) and morphology (HR-TEM and AFM). Potential applications in photo- and sonodynamic therapy are envisaged.

Abstract

This work describes the design of a modified porphyrin that bears four furan rings linked by 1,2-bis-(2-aminoethoxy)ethane spacers. This unit is a well-suited scaffold for a Diels–Alder reaction with commercial reduced-graphene oxide, which is also described in this paper. A new hybrid material is obtained, thanks to efficient grafting under microwave irradiation, and fully characterized in terms of structure (UV, TGA, Raman) and morphology (HR-TEM and AFM). Potential applications in photo- and sonodynamic therapy are envisaged.
