Expanded porphyrins and aromaticity

Author affiliations


meso-Aryl-substituted expanded porphyrins that are porphyrin homologues consisting of more than five pyrrolic units are a nice platform to realize diverse aromatic and antiaromatic species as well as stable radical species. They are also an ideal series to realize topologically twisted molecules with distinct Möbius aromaticity and antiaromaticity.
