A new fluorous-tagged porphyrinoid
The field of corrole chemistry has flourished over the past decade. Simple and high-yielding procedures have made the corrole ligand readily available, and several procedures on how to functionalize and otherwise modify corroles and their metal complexes have been reported. During an attempt to synthesize corrole from a fluorous tagged aromatic aldehyde a new porphyrinoid has been isolated from the pyrrole-aldehyde condensation, proving that pyrroles and aromatic aldehydes are indeed capable of self-assembling into a variety of macrocycles. This new porphyrinoid is believed to be an isosmaragdyrin, which would be the first report of a smaragdyrin synthesized from a one-pot procedure.
