The First Direct Synthesis of Corroles from Pyrrole.
The solvent-free, catalyst-free condensation of pyrrole and aldehydes provides an extremely facile synthetic pathway to novel corroles, including an ionic, water-soluble corrole.
Inhibition of green algae growth by corrole‐based photosensitizers
This study was performed to examine the potential of photodynamic inactivation for growth inhibition of green algae through generation of singlet oxygen.
Selective substitution of corroles: nitration, hydroformylation, and chlorosulfonation.
This work demonstrates the feasibility and power of electrophilic substitution on the peripheral carbon atoms of triarylcorroles as a synthetic tool to new derivatives by a combination of X-ray crystallography of the various products and detailed analysis of their NMR spectra.
Superoxide dismutase activity of corrole metal complexes.
The first report regarding SOD activity of metallocorroles, investigated via the combination of the cytochrome C assay, pulse radiolysis, and electrochemistry, is used for identifying the main
Synthesis, spectroscopy, and structures of new rhodium(I) and rhodium(III) corroles and catalysis thereby
The syntheses and molecular structures of six- and five-coordinated rhodium(III) corroles (by pyridines and a chiral amine, respectively) and the rhodium(I) complex of a chiral corrole are described,
Porphine and pyrrole-substituted porphyrin from cyclocondensation of tripyrrane with mono-substituted pyrroles
The condensation of non-substituted tripyrrane with mono-substituted pyrroles did not lead to corrole, but to porphine and 5-pyrrolyl-porphyrin. Both compounds were fully characterized by a
One-step conversions of a simple corrole into chiral and amphiphilic derivatives
Abstract The reactions of phosgene with 5,10,15-tris(pentafluorophenyl)corrole and its gallium(III) complex lead to a novel chiral macrocycle and an amphiphilic corrole, respectively. Both types of
Development of Singlet Oxygen Luminescence Kinetics during the Photodynamic Inactivation of Green Algae
This study incontrovertibly marks a crucial, inevitable step in the investigation of photodynamic inactivation of biofilms: it shows the feasibility of using the singlet oxygen luminescence kinetics to investigate photodynamic effects on surfaces and thus opens a field for numerous investigations.
Microwave-assisted synthesis of non-substituted tripyrrane, tetrapyrrane and pentapyrrane
Abstract The microwave-assisted one-step condensation of aqueous formaldehyde with pyrrole was successfully applied for the preparation of non-substituted tri-, tetra- and pentapyrranes with
Solvent-Free Condensation of Pyrrole and Pentafluorobenzaldehyde: A Novel Synthetic Pathway to Corrole and Oligopyrromethenes
The solvent-free condensation of pyrrole and pentafluorobenzaldehyde (and to a lesser extent other electron-poor aldehydes as well) leads to a variety of products, of which three have been isolated
