Incorporation of a p-phenylene unit into the azuliporphyrinogens frame-oxidation and ruthenium cluster coordination.
A porphyrinogen macrocycle incorporating two azulenes, phenylene and thiophene into the framework, joined by four C(sp3) atoms has been obtained as a mixture of six isomers. They were successfully separated and characterized spectroscopically. The identity of two of them was confirmed by X‐ray crystallography. One isomer was tested in reaction with [Ru3(CO)12] yielding exclusively π‐complex with two clusters attached to azulenes. The partial oxidation of porphyrinogens yielded dication with two unmodified meso bridges. The stepwise oxidation followed by reaction with water as nucleophile afforded the dicationic species with two hydroxyl groups and a trication with one OH group. The hydroxy‐dication can be reversibly transformed into hydroxy‐trication by addition of HBF4 etherate.
