Novel route to functionalized tetraaryltetra[2,3]naphthaloporphyrins via oxidative aromatization.

Abstract

A novel general route to substituted meso-tetraaryltetra[2,3]naphthaloporphyrins (Ar(4)TNP) and meso-tetraaryloctamethoxytetra[2,3]naphthaloporphyrins (Ar(4)(MeO)(8)TNP) via oxidative aromatization of nonaromatically fused porphyrin precursors is described. Ar(4)(MeO)(8)TNPs exhibit more red-shifted absorption bands than Ar(4)TNPs and differ dramatically in… (More)
