Inverted and fused: Meso-pentafluorophenyl-substituted N-confused, doubly N-fused pentaphyrin (see X-ray crystal structure; green: F, blue: N) was synthesized from [3+2] coupling of confused tripyrrane and dipyrromethane dicarbinol, followed by oxidation. Inverted pyrrole rings in pentaphyrin are easily transformed into N-fused tripentacyclic rings.
