Abstract: Spectral behavior of mesotetrakis(4Nbenzylpyridyl)porphyrinmetaloxo cluster (SiW12O4-40) supramolecular systems in aqueous solution was studied by UVvisible spectrometry.The spectral evolution and Job's plots reveal that the stable aggregates contain equal numbers of the cationic porphyrins and the anionic SiW12O4-40.The electrocatalytic behavior of reducing O2 for the 1∶1 supramolecular complex [CoTMPyP][SiW12O40],was also investigated,the supramolecular complex might be hopeful for being used as a new material of modified electrodes for electrocatalytic reduction of O2.

Key words: Cationic porphyrin, Metal-oxo cluster anions, Supramolecular complex,  Electrocatalytic reduction of O2
