The lowest electronic transitions of Tn are continuously redshifted to the IR region due to much enhanced π-electron delocalization throughout the entire fused porphyrin array. This unique feature provides a promising possibility for the application of Tn as electric wires in molecular electronics. To investigate the electronic transition in relation to the molecular structures of Tn, the resonance Raman spectra of Tn are recorded by changing the photoexcitation wavelength.
