Porphyrin dimers with amide-bonded 2,2’- and 4,4’-biphenyl moieties were synthesized and isolated. Both structural and spectroscopic characterizations were performed to in-depth understand the relationship between the helical molecular structure and inherent chirality of achiral 2,2’-biphenyl linked flexible porphyrin dimers.
