The investigation of artificial molecular photo catalysts plays an important role in the development of novel energy sources. In this respect, the incorporation of photoactive compounds into nanomembranes is a promising approach for such applications in the field of light harvesting and electron transfer. Ruthenium-complexes are well-known photo-sensitizers and photocatalysts, which facilitate the utilization of light energy by electron transfer to/from the actual catalyst. The preparation of photoactive nanomembranes requires selective immobilization of these species on the nanomembrane surface. Here we present various immobilization strategies of ruthenium-II-photosensitizers on 1 nm thick carbon nanomembranes (CNMs). We use thiol-ene click reactions and amide-bond formation via active esters to couple the complexes to the CNM. Alternatively the metal-capturing unit was formed intrinsically by the crosslinked self-assembled monolayer units. The functionalized CNMs have been characterized by means of X-ray photoelectron spectroscopy as well as atomic force and optical microscopy.
