Abstract

Synthesis of bona fideN-confused phlorin derivatives through simple chemical reduction of N-confused porphyrin precursors using sodium borohydride, p-toluenesulfonyl hydrazide, etc. is described. Spectroscopic, X-ray diffraction analyses and DFT-assisted calculations of these species support the nonaromatic phlorin electronic structure.
