dc.description.abstractWith the purpose of creating a conjugated system for potential experiments in solar cell applications, the first π-extended TTF (ExTTF) porphyrin with a functionalizable handle (carboxylic ester) was synthesized. The overall yield was 0.249%. This compound will then be incorporated into a 2-D metalorganic framework using zinc and bispyridine as the linkers. Assuming the synthesis of this sheet will later be successful, it can be tested for its redox properties using CV and its absorption properties to assess its feasibility in a solar cell. It is believed that these sheets of ExTTF porphyrin and zinc will have long-lived charge separated states when paired with C60 and will improve the efficiency of solar cells.en_US
