Abstract: Summary: The first example of the synthesis of acrylonitrile copolymers with porphyrin pendants and the subsequent electrospinning of the resultant copolymers into nanofibers is presented in this communication. Vinyl porphyrin monomers have been synthesized and copolymerized with acrylonitrile through solution polymerization. FT-IR, NMR, UV-vis, and fluorescence spectroscopy are used to characterize the copolymers. Preliminary quantum chemical calculations have also been carried out to reveal the activity of the vinyl porphyrin monomers. Nanofibers with a diameter of around 330 nm are prepared by electrospinning the copolymer solutions. Their morphology and porphyrination are clearly observed by field-emission scanning electron microscopy and fluorescence microscopy. It is speculated that this type of nanofiber may be a latent support of porphyrins for various purposes such as catalysis, molecular imprinting, sensors, and light/energy conversion
