Frontiers in Electrophilic Nitration of meso-Tetraphenylporphyrin Derivatives

Abstract

The electrophilic nitration of 5,10,15,20-tetraphenylporphyrin derivatives bearing electron-withdrawing groups on meso-phenyl rings is described. The reaction with yellow fuming nitric acid (d = 1.52) in CHCl3, contrary to the previous observations, took place at β-position. This mode of reactivity for free-base porphyrins has been never earlier described in the literature.
