Aldehyde¿Appended Tetraphenylporphyrin: A New Building Block for Porphyrin Arrays

Journal Article


Abstract


  • Porphyrin arrays may act as light‐harvesting devices which mimic the photosynthetic capture of light. Until now the construction of a variety of arrays has been restricted by the lack of suitable methodology for porphyrin synthesis. A fully conjugated, aldehyde‐appended porphyrin building block has been made and its potential demonstrated with the one‐step synthesis of dimers and trimer 1. (Figure Presented.)
