Unsymmetrically fused porphyrins containing one or two naphthalimide subunits were prepared in modular syntheses relying on electron-rich and electron-poor pyrrole building blocks. These new chromophores show progressive changes in their electron-deficient character, while retaining comparably small optical and electrochemical band gaps. The intrinsic curvature and extended optical absorption of these systems make them of interest as mono- A nd difunctional components of multichromophoric assemblies.
