The potential of porphyrins and related macrocycles for applications in molecular electronics owes much to the fundamental studies of the photosynthetic light-harvesting arrays and reaction centers. The use of model systems to better understand these essential processes has resulted in the development of an assortment of methodologies for functionalizing and constructing the complex three-dimensional nanostructures that will be essential for a successful molecular electronic system.
