Abstract

β-to-β 2,5-Pyrrolylene linked cyclic porphyrin oligomers have been synthesized by Suzuki–Miyaura coupling of 2,5-diborylpyrrole and 3,7-dibromoporphyrin. The cyclic porphyrin oligomers exhibit roughly coplanar structures, strong excitonic coupling, small electrochemical HOMO–LUMO gaps, and ultrafast excitation energy transfer between the neighboring porphyrins via the pyrrolylene bridge.
