The Suzuki-Miyaura coupling reaction of pyren-2-yl boronic acid ester with a meso-dibromodiphenylporphyrin derivative was carried out to give another pyrene-substituted porphyrin. The electrophilic substitution reaction occurred selectively on the porphyrin nucleus of this molecule. The introduced pyrenes acted as a light-harvesting antenna.
