Chemosensors, Vol. 9, Pages 204: Recognition and Sensing of Chiral Organic Molecules by Chiral Porphyrinoids: A Review
Chemosensors doi: 10.3390/chemosensors9080204
Porphyrinoids are extremely attractive for their electronic, optical, and coordination properties as well as for their versatile substitution at meso/β-positions. All these features allow porphyrinoids to behave as chiroptical hosts for chiral recognition by means of non-covalent interactions towards chiral guests. Over the years, chiral discrimination of chiral molecules such as amino acids, alcohols, amines, hydroxy-carboxylic acids, etc. has aroused the interest of the scientific community. Hence, this review aims to report on the progress to date by illustrating some relevant research regarding the chiral recognition of a multitude of chiral organic guests through several chiral mono- and bis-porphyrins via different spectroscopic techniques.
