The octaethylporphyrin (OEP)-dihexylbithiophene (DHBTh) derivatives combined with pyridine (Pyr) and pyrimidine (Pym) as proton-acceptable rings (PAR) were synthesized, describable as OEP-DHBTh-PAR, in which all the OEP, DHBTh, and PAR components are connected with diacetylene linkage. Their 1H NMR and electronic spectral properties and electrochemical behaviors were studied under the neutral and acidic conditions. Reversible proton-mediated and heat-driven spectral changes of OEP- DHBTh-PAR were performed, reflecting both properties of PAR and DHBTh.
