Substituent effect on optical gas sensing performance in porphyrin-based optical waveguide detection system was studied by molecular dynamics simulation (MDS), absorption/emission spectrum analysis, and optical waveguide (OWG) detection. The affinities of porphyrin with seven types of substituents (–H, –OH, –tBu, –COOH, –NH2, –OCH3, –SO3−) on para position of meso-phenyl porphyrin toward gas molecules in adsorption process were studied in different size of boxes with the same pressure and concentration. Analyte gases (CO2, H2S, HCl, NO2) were exposed to porphyrin film in absorption spectrophotometer, and in OWG with evanescent field excited by a guiding laser light with 670 nm wavelength. The extent of interaction between host molecule and the guest analytes was analyzed by the number of gas molecules in vicinity of 0.3 nm around substituents of porphyrin molecules. Optical waveguide results reveal that sulfonate porphyrin is mostly responsive to hydrochloride, hydrosulfide gas and nitrogen dioxide gases with strong response intensity. Molecular dynamics and spectral analysis provide objective information about the molecular state and sensing properties. Molecular rearrangements induced by gas exposure was studied by spectral analysis and surface morphology before and after gas exposure taking hydrosulfide gas as an example. Film-gas interaction mechanism was discussed in terms of each gas and substituent group characters.
