A fullerene-ammonium derivative has been combined with different metalloporphyrin-crown ether receptors to generate very stable supermolecules. The combination of fullerene-porphyrin and ammonium-crown ether interactions leads to a strong chelate effect as evidenced by a high effective molarity (3.16 M). The different parameters influencing the stability of the supramolecular ensembles,in particular the nature of the metal in the porphyrin moiety, have been rationalized with the help of theoretical calculations thus providing new insights into fullerene-porphyrin interactions.
