Abstract:
Nitrooctaethylporphyrins readily undergo nucleophilic aromatic substitution in the presence of HCl or HBr. In the presence of methoxide, nucleophilic addition to give a porphodimethane occurs, followed by autoxidation to the methoxyporphyrin. Unlike the nitrated complexes, the chloro-substituted porphyrins exhibit redox potentials similar to those of unsubstituted analogs. Meso-halogenat
