A new catenane containing four Rh(III) porphyrins has been prepared following a three-step strategy: (i) Cu(I)-driven entwining of two free base porphyrin-bearing bidentate chelates, followed by (ii) insertion of rhodium in the porphyrin nuclei, and finally (iii) cyclisationvia the formation of N–Rh coordination bonds. Direct metalation of porphyrinic compounds with [Rh(CO)2Cl]2 was not met with success when the bidentate chelate used as a connector was metal free, thus making the Cu(I) protecting approach very attractive.
