Porphyrin and subphthalocyaninatoboron(iii) chromophores have been fused through a quinoxaline moiety, resulting in the first porphyrin-subphthalocyaninatoboron(iii)-fused hybrid with intramolecular charge transfer from tetrapyrrole/tripyrrole chromophores to the quinoxaline moiety. The unique plane-bowl molecular structure of this hybrid was revealed based on single crystal X-ray diffraction analysis for the first time.
