    Abstract

    A novel isoindole-containing polyaromatic hydrocarbon was unexpectedly formed during the synthesis of meso-2,6-dichlorophenyl-substituted tribenzosubporphyrin from a reaction of phthalimide and 2,6-dichlorophenylacetic acid in the presence of boric acid. Due to the highly annulated structure, this molecule exhibited blue color in solution, which was theoretically well reproduced by the HOMO-LUMO transitions based on the time-dependent DFT calculation. In this manuscript, the synthesis and properties of this polyaromatic hydrocarbon and meso-2,6-dichlorophenyl-substituted tribenzosubporphyrin are reported.
