The excitation energy transfer process occurring in energy donor-acceptor linked porphyrin array system is theoretically simulated using the on-the-fly filtered propagator path integral method. The compound consists of an energy donating meso-meso linked Zn(II) porphyrin array and an energy accepting 5,15-bisphenylethynylated Zn(II) porphyrin, in which the donor array and the acceptor are linked via a 1,4-phenylene spacer Real-time path integral simulations provide time-evolution of the site population and the excitation energy transfer rate constants are determined. Simulations and experiments show an excellent agreement indicating that the path integration is a useful tool to investigate the energy transfer dynamics in molecular assemblies.
