Alkyl and aryl substituted corroles. 1. Synthesis and characterization of free base and cobalt containing derivatives. x-ray structure of (Me(4)Ph(5)Cor)Co(py)(2).

The synthesis, spectroscopic properties, and electrochemistry of six different alkyl- and aryl-substituted Co(III) corroles are presented. The investigated compounds contain methyl, ethyl, phenyl, or substituted phenyl groups at the eight beta-positions of the corrole macrocycle and four derivatives also contain a phenyl group at the 10-meso position of the… CONTINUE READING
