An insight into solvent-free diimide porphyrin reduction: a versatile approach for meso-aryl hydroporphyrin synthesis

Author affiliations

Abstract

This paper describes an environmentally sustainable synthetic method for the preparation of a set of meso-aryl hydroporphyrins, namely chlorins and bacteriochlorins, via reduction of porphyrins with diimide, in the total absence of solvents and bases. Thermomicroscopy studies clearly showed that the process is a typical solvent-free reaction.
