Metal coordination induced ring contraction of porphyrin derivatives

Author affiliations

Abstract

A remarkable rearrangement of a diferrocenylporphyrin to give a silver(III) corrole has been discovered. Compared to the previously reported porphyrin to corrole ring conversions (extremely rare and poor reaction yields), our methodology delivers near quantitative yield for this ring contraction.
