Abstract:
The synthesis of three octapyrrolic, and four dodecapyrrolic, oligomers is reported. They are linear poly(dipyrromethene)s and potential ligands as building blocks for supramol. architectures through self-assembly. Octapyrrolic oligomers were prepared in 90-95% yields by condensation of 2 equivalents of a tripyrrolic compound with 1 equivalent of diformyldipyrrolic compdounds. A similar procedure, involving the condensation of 2 equiv of a pentapyrrolic starting material with 1 equivalent of 5-7 or 14, was found to give rise to the corresponding dodecameric systems in 41-56% yields.
