ï¿½ 2017 Wiley-VCH Verlag GmbH & Co. KGaA, Weinheim New bis(dipyrrinato)zinc(II) complex micro- and nanosheets containing zinc(II) porphyrin (N2) are synthesized. A liquid/liquid interface method between dipyrrin porphyrin ligand L2 and zinc acetate produces N2 with a large domain size. N2 can be layered quantitatively onto a flat substrate by a modified Langmuir–Schï¿½fer method. N2 deposited on a SnO2electrode functions as a photoanode for a photoelectric conversion system. The photoresponse of N2 covers the whole visible wavelength range (400–650 nm), with a maximum quantum efficiency of more than twice that of a bis(dipyrrinato)zinc(II) complex nanosheet without porphyrin.
