A2B-type meso-(4-nitrophenyl)-substituted subporphyrins have been synthesized and shown to undergo very fast photoinduced intramolecular charge separation (CS) and charge recombination (CR) between the subporphyrin core and the meso-4-nitrophenyl group in CH2Cl2 as probed by femtosecond time-resolved transient absorption spectroscopy. Red-shifted emissions were detected from charge-separated states as a rare case for porphyrinoids.
