In this work the trapping and conversion of visible light energy into chemical energy is examined using a supramolecular assembly. This consists of a light absorbing antenna and a porphyrin redox centre both covalently attached to a DNA strand, which in turn is bound to a lipid membrane. The excitation energy is finally trapped as a benzoquinone radical anion that could potentially be used in subsequent chemical reactions.
