[reaction: see text] The utility of expanded porphyrins as a dipolarophile in cycloaddition reactions has been investigated. The 1,3-dipolar cycloaddition of meso-octakis(pentafluorophenyl)[36]octaphyrin(1.1.1.1.1.1.1.1) with an azomethine ylide provides mono- and bis-pyrrolidine-fused octaphyrins regio- and stereoselectively. Treatment of the cycloadduct(More)
meso-Pentafluorophenyl- substituted [40]nonaphyrin(1.1.1.1.1.1.1.1.1) 3 has been prepared by using a stepwise ring-size-selective synthesis, and has been reduced with NaBH(4) to [42]nonaphyrin(1.1.1.1.1.1.1.1.1) 5. Structurally, 3 is characterized by a figure-of-eight shape, consisting of a porphyrin-like tetrapyrrolic segment and a hexaphyrin-like(More)
