    Rotation of pyrrole rings in regular porphyrins and N-confused porphyrins is theoretically investigated by DFT calculations. While the inversion of the pyrrole rings in the regular porphyrins requires high activation energies (36.5-49.1 kcal/mol), the inversion of the confused pyrrole rings in the N-confused porphyrins requires much lower activation energies (18.1-24.5 kcal/mol). This marked difference can be explained by the intramolecular hydrogen bondings and aromatic stabilization due to the [18]annulenic substructures, where confusion and NH tautomerism play an important role. In both of the macrocycles, 360° rotation of their pyrrole rings would be difficult possibly due to the small cavity. Alternatively, a reaction pathway for the production of N-fused porphyrin from. N-confused porphyrin is obtained, which is consistent with the experimental, observation.
