Abstract

Efficient photoinduced electron transfer from proton transfer dyes encapsulated within water soluble supramolecular host octa acid to electron acceptors present outside the capsule was observed in aqueous solution. N-Methylpyridinium iodide was found to be the best acceptor compared to 4,4′-dimethylviologen dichloride, most likely due to its better binding with the exterior of the host octa acid walls.
