(Figure Presented) Clicking together: The Suzuki-Miyaura coupling of β, β'-diborylated porphyrin blocks and meso, meso'-dibrominated porphyrin blocks was used for the con-struction of directly meso-β doubly linked porphyrin rings including two tetraporphyrin rings, hexaporphyrin rings, and a bridged heptaporphyrin (see picture).
