Triphenylene-fused porphyrins.


PMID 21604789

Abstract

Triphenylene has been successfully fused to the porphyrin periphery through a convenient oxidative ring-closure reaction. Bistriphenylene-fused porphyrins and a dibenzo[fg,op]tetracene-fused porphyrin have also been obtained using a similar approach. These π-extended porphyrins exhibited broadened and bathochromic shifted UV-vis absorptions.
