Abstract

The gram-scale production of porphycene derivatives is reported. This has been achieved by acid-catalyzed ring closure of an E/Z-mixture of 5,6-diaryldipyrroethenes, resulting in the formation of meso-tetraarylporphycenes in yields of up to 80%. E/Z-isomerization of the 5,6-diaryldipyrroethenes under acidic conditions was key to proceed the effective macrocyclization.
