Ethynyl-bridged porphyrin-corrole dyads and triads were synthesized by using Pd(0) mediated coupling reactions and their structures were characterized by NMR, FT-IR, UV/Vis and fluorescence techniques. Besides spectroscopic techniques, computational studies at B3LYP/6-311G(d,p) level of DFT were also used to elucidate the minimum energy geometries and the molecular orbital characteristics of the new dyads and triads. DFT calculations pointed out the presence of charge separated donor-acceptor property between macrocycles of dyads and triads, and the emission studies indicated an excited state interaction between macrocycles, and energy transfer from the porphyrin to the corrole unit.
