Expanded porphyrin-like structures based on twinned triphenylenes.


Triphenylene twins are intriguing structures, and those bridged through their 3,6-positions by dipyrromethene units give a new class of macrocycles that can be viewed as rigid, expanded porphyrin derivatives in which coplanarity is enforced in a formally antiaromatic π system. Somewhat surprisingly, however, macrocyclization leads to significant overall… (More)
