The synthesis of specifically metallated heterobimetallic dimeric porphyrins

Journal Article


Abstract


  • A series of conjugated mixed metal heteroporphyrin dimers has been prepared using Wittig chemistry. They can be synthesized from a double Wittig reaction between porphyrin phosphonium salts and phthalaldehydes, or from stepwise Wittig reactions. This allows both symmetrical and unsymmetrical dimers to be prepared with complete control of porphyrin metallation. Copyright © 2002 Society of Porphyrins & Phthalocyanines.
