Abstract

The π-extended cyclo[4]naphthobipyrrole 1a has been prepared via an Fe(III)-mediated oxidative cyclization of an alkyl-substituted naphthobipyrrole. The structure of this new expanded porphyrin, isolated as the deprotonated sulfate salt, was characterized by spectroscopic means, as well through a single crystal X-ray diffraction analysis. Salt 1a displays a total of four well-resolved redox waves as determined by cyclic voltammetry. It also displays bathochromically shifted near-IR absorption maxima compared to the diprotonated forms of nonannulated cyclo[8]pyrroles.
