Abstract:
Unsubstituted β.β-linked diformyldipyrromethanes are promising precursors for the synthesis of poly dipyrromethene ligands and N-confused porphyrins. A strategy has been developed to selectively synthesize unsubstituted β.β-linked diformyldipyrromethanes, e.g., I, in moderate yields starting from 2-formylpyrrole.Unsubstituted β.β-linked diformyldipyrromethanes are promising precursors for the synthesis of poly dipyrromethene ligands and N-confused porphyrins.
