Quinonoidal subporphyrin analogue 2 was synthesized by oxidation of meso-tris(3,5-di-tert-butyl-4-hydroxyphenyl)subporphyrin 1 (see scheme). Compound 2 was readily deprotonated to generate anionic species 3. These three macrocycles were structurally characterized, including the full delocalization of the anionic charge in 3.
