Electrophilic substitution of azulene has recently been shown to provide the means by which carbon-carbon bonds can be generated to form novel macrocyclic systems such as calixazulenes. These studies inspired us to develop a "one-pot" Rothemund-type synthesis of meso-tetraphenylazuliporphyrin. Azuliporphyrins, a group of cross-conjugated carbaporphyrinoids that exhibit intriguing chemistry and metallation properties, have previously only been available by multistep syntheses. In this work… Expand
