A new supramolecular triad comprised of β-functionalized conjugated free-base porphyrin–zinc porphyrin and axially coordinated electron acceptor fullerene has been successfully synthesized. Under light illumination, simultaneous energy transfer to free-base porphyrin and electron transfer to fullerene competitively occur. The cover picture highlights these findings and uses a tug of war to demonstrate the competitive events. More information can be found in the Full Paper by H. Wang, F. D'Souza et al. (DOI: 10.1002/chem.201702178).
