A novel doubly N-confused isophlorin (2) was prepared by the nucleophilic ring-opening reaction of N-confused, N-fused porphyrin (1) with benzenethiol. The structure, redox property and copper coordination ability of isophlorin2were investigated by various spectroscopic methods and theoretical calculations.
