Shota Ooi, Takayuki Tanaka, Takahisa Ikeue, Kazuhisa Yamasumi, Kento Ueta, Daiki Shimizu, Masatoshi Ishida, Hiroyuki Furuta, Atsuhiro Osuka, Bis-copper(II) Complex of Triply-linked Corrole Dimer and Its Dication, Chemistry - An Asian Journal, 10.1002/asia.201801467, 14, 10, 1771-1776, 2019.05, Copper complexes of corroles have recently been a subject of keen interest due to their ligand non-innocent character and unique redox properties. Here we investigated bis-copper complex of a triply-linked corrole dimer that serves as a pair of divalent metal ligands but can be reduced to a pair of trivalent metal ligands. Reaction of triply-linked corrole dimer 2 with Cu(acac) 2 (acac=acetylacetonate) gave bis-copper(II) complex 2Cu as a highly planar molecule with a mean-plane deviation value of 0.020 Å, where the two copper ions were revealed to be divalent by ESR, SQUID, and XPS methods. Oxidation of 2Cu with two equivalents of AgBF 4 gave complex 3Cu, which was characterized as a bis-copper(II) complex of a dicationic triply-linked corrole dimer not as the corresponding bis-copper(III) complex. In accord with this assignment, the structural parameters around the copper ions were revealed to be quite similar for 2Cu and 3Cu. Importantly, the magnetic spin–spin interaction differs depending on the redox-state of the ligand, being weak ferromagnetic in 2Cu and antiferromagnetic in 3Cu..

Photostable Triplet Sensitizers for Singlet Oxygen Generation, Chemistry - An Asian Journal, 10.1002/asia.201801671, 14, 10, 1729-1736, 2019.05, Triplet photosensitizers that generate singlet oxygen efficiently are attractive for applications such as photodynamic therapy (PDT). Extending the absorption band to a near-infrared (NIR) region (700 nm≈) with reasonable photostability is one of the major demands in the rational design of such sensitizers. We herein prepared a series of mono- and bis-palladium complexes (1-Pd-H 2 , 2-Pd-H 2 , 1-Pd-Pd, and 2-Pd-Pd) based on modified calix[6]phyrins as photosensitizers for singlet oxygen generation. These palladium complexes showed intense absorption profiles in the visible-to-NIR region (500–750 nm) depending on the number of central metals. Upon photoirradiation in the presence of 1,5-dihydroxynaphthalene (DHN) as a substrate for reactive oxygen species, the bis-palladium complexes generated singlet oxygen with high efficiency and excellent photostability. Singlet oxygen generation was confirmed from the characteristic spectral feature of the spin trapped complex in the EPR spectrum and the intact 1 O 2 emission at 1270 nm..

A Versatile Metal Coordination Ligand Using its Unique NH Tautomerism, Chemistry - An Asian Journal, 10.1002/asia.201801750, 14, 10, 1697-1702, 2019.05, A novel N-confused porphyrin (NCP) analogue bearing an external aza-dipyrrin-like coordination site was synthesized by a Schiff-base forming reaction of N-confused oxoporphyrin and 2-aminopyridine derivatives. The chimera molecule enhances the intrinsic NH tautomerism of NCP to enable four possible tautomeric structures, three of which were identified by metal coordination..

Synthesis and Properties Arising from the 1,3-Dithiole-2-one Units, Organic Letters, 10.1021/acs.orglett.9b00752, 2019.04, Subphthalocyanine (SubPc) and its benzo ring-removed analogue, subporphyrazine (SubPz), bearing 1,3-dithiole-2-one (S2CO) groups as a new class of substituents were synthesized. In addition to the perturbed optical properties due to the presence of electron-withdrawing S2CO units, the deep bowl-shaped structure of the SubPz derivative allowed concave-convex interaction to form a unique co-crystal structure with C60. Finally, using the reactivity of the peripheral S2CO units, S2CO-fused SubPc was successfully converted into tetrathiafulvalene (TTF)-annulated SubPc in a yield higher than that of the direct synthesis from a TTF-fused phthalonitrile..

Tuning the Visible/Near-Infrared Optical Properties by a Combination of Porphyrin and Its Isomer Units, Inorganic Chemistry, 10.1021/acs.inorgchem.9b00251, 58, 7, 4647-4656, 2019.04, Hybrid metal-organic frameworks (MOFs) with core/shell-like hierarchical structure comprised of zirconium metal and porphyrin (e.g., TPP) and its isomer, N-confused porphyrin (NCP), were synthesized through a seed-mediated reaction. The hierarchical structures of hybrid MOFs were characterized by the microscopic image analyses (e.g., scanning electron microscope (SEM), energy dispersive X-ray (EDX) spectrometry, and confocal laser scanning microscope (CLSM)). Taking advantage of the intrinsic light-harvesting properties of the porphyrin dye and the N-confused isomer, changing the core/shell layer structures of hybrid MOFs allows for tuning of the visible-to-near-infrared (NIR) absorption/emission characters, excited-state energy migrations, and photosensitization capabilities. The Förster energy transfer event occurring in the bulk MOF samples by photoexcitation enabled us to control the photoinduced singlet oxygen generation through the comprehensive light-harvesting ability of these hybrid porphyrinic MOFs. Therefore, implementation of a precisely designed porphyrin "substitute" into the MOF-based materials indeed provides a new mimic of the photosynthetic pigment system and should be potentially applicable for solar-light-driven devices..
7. Qizhao Li, Chengjie Li, Jinseok Kim, Masatoshi Ishida, Xin Li, Tingting Gu, Xu Liang, Weihua Zhu, Ågren Hans, Dongho Kim, Hiroyuki Furuta, Yongshu Xie, Regioselectively Halogenated Expanded Porphyrinoids as Building Blocks for Constructing Porphyrin-Porphyrinoid Heterodyads with Tunable Energy Transfer, Journal of the American Chemical Society, 10.1021/jacs.8b13148, 141, 13, 5294-5302, 2019.04, Expanded porphyrins have been attracting increasing attention owing to their unique optical and electrochemical properties as well as switchable aromaticity. Toward material applications, regioselective functionalization of the expanded porphyrins at their periphery is indeed challenging due to the presence of multiple reactive sites. Herein, a set of regioselective halogenated isomers (L5-Br-A/B/C) of neo-confused isosmaragdyrin (L5) are synthesized by a combination of the halogenation reaction of L5 and sequential macrocycle-to-macrocycle transformation reactions of its halogenated isomers. On this basis, the regioselectively functionalized isosmaragdyrins are utilized as building blocks for constructing multichromophoric porphyrinoids, specifically, heterodyads L5-ZnP-A/B/C, in which a common zinc porphyrin is linked at three different pyrrolic positions of isosmaragdyrins, respectively, by Sonogashira coupling reactions. The highly efficient energy cascade from porphyrin to isosmaragdyrin is elucidated using steady-state/time-resolved spectroscopies and theoretical calculations. Notably, the energy transfer processes from the porphyrin to the isosmaragdyrin moieties as well as the excitation energy transfer rates in L5-ZnP-A/B/C are highly dependent on the linking sites by through-bond and Förster-type resonance energy transfer mechanisms. The site-selective functionalization and subsequent construction of a set of heterodyads of the expanded porphyrinoid would provide opportunities for developing new materials for optoelectronic applications..
8. Qizhao Li, Masatoshi Ishida, Hiroto Kai, Tingting Gu, Chengjie Li, Xin Li, Glib Baryshnikov, Xu Liang, Weihua Zhu, Ågren Hans, Hiroyuki Furuta, Yongshu Xie, Skeletal Rearrangement of Twisted Thia-Norhexaphyrin
Multiply Annulated Polypyrrolic Aromatic Macrocycles, Angewandte Chemie - International Edition, 10.1002/anie.201900010, 2019.03, A hybrid thia-norhexaphyrin comprising a directly linked N-confused pyrrole and thiophene unit (1) revealed unique macrocycle transformations to afford multiply inner-annulated aromatic macrocycles. Oxidation with 2,3-dichloro-5,6-dicyano-1,4-benzoquinone triggered a cleavage of the C-S bond of the thiophene unit, accompanied with skeletal rearrangement to afford unique π-conjugated products: a thiopyrrolo-pentaphyrin embedded with a pyrrolo[1,2]isothiazole (2), a sulfur-free pentaphyrin incorporating an indolizine moiety (3), and a thiopyranyltriphyrinoid containing a 2H-thiopyran unit (4). Furthermore, 2 underwent desulfurization reactions to afford a fused pentaphyrin containing a pyrrolizine moiety (5) under mild conditions. Using expanded porphyrin scaffolds, oxidative thiophene cleavage and desulfurization of the hitherto unknown N-confused core-modified macrocycles would be a practical approach for developing unique polypyrrolic aromatic macrocycles..

efficient photosensitizers for singlet oxygen generation, Dalton Transactions, 10.1039/c8dt04540b, 48, 7, 2467-2478, 2019.02, A series of rhenium(i) dipyrrinato complexes (Re1-Re8) have been prepared and characterized; their crystal structures, phosphorescence and singlet oxygen generation studies are reported. The aromatic substituents, such as thienyl, p-bromophenyl, p-fluorophenyl, m-fluorophenyl, pentaflurophenyl, N-butylcarbazole, N-phenylcarbazole, and N-butylphenothiazine, are linked to the C5 position of Re-dipyrrinates. Varying the electronic nature of the substituents from electron donating (e.g., carbazole) to electron withdrawing (e.g., pentaflurophenyl) allowed the change in the structural, electrochemical, and spectroscopic properties of these complexes. In particular, the rhenium dipyrrinates showed phosphorescence in the near IR region with sufficiently longer triplet state lifetimes (τT = 9-29 μs). Also, a large Stokes shift (Δν = 5682-6957 cm-1) was witnessed for all the rhenium dipyrrinates. Triplet emission was reflected in the efficient singlet oxygen generation yields (ΦΔ ∼ 0.75-0.98) along with the distinct photo-stability. Density functional theory (DFT) calculations revealed that the electron density is spread over the dipyrrin unit in most complexes. Rhenium dipyrrinate having a phenothiazine substituent exhibited the smallest HOMO-LUMO band gap (2.820 eV) among all Re-complexes..

Single-crystal X-ray diffraction analysis of the hybrid porphyrinoids (S

H NMR spectra suggest the presence of paratropic ring currents. These antiaromatic macrocycles show characteristic optical features and underwent reversible two-electron reduction to Hückel aromatic 26π- and 34π-electron species, respectively, as is evident from the results of spectroscopic and theoretical studies (nucleus-independent chemical shift (NICS) and anisotropy of the current-induced density (ACID) calculations). The incorporation of hybrid diheteroles alternately into expanded porphyrin skeletons provides a novel approach to the fine-tuning of the electronic structures of planar antiaromatic macrocycles..

Selective Reactivity for Ambident 2-Heteroatom-Substituted Pyridines Serving as Axial Ligands, ChemPlusChem, 10.1002/cplu.201800630, 2019.01, Three types of ruthenium(II) N-confused porphyrin (NCP) complexes bearing an axial 2-thiopyridine, 2-pyridone, and 2-iminopyridine moiety at the inner carbon atom, respectively, were synthesized. The unique reactivity of the 2-substituted pyridine derivatives (2-X-pyridine; X=SH, OH, NH
2
) toward the inner carbon atom of the NCP allows the formation of two types of coordinated products (i. e., pyridine donor versus 2-heteroatom donors), as inferred from single-crystal X-ray structures. The selective reactivity was investigated by using density functional theory (DFT) calculations. Finally, the catalytic activity of these ruthenium complexes was demonstrated through the styrene oxidation reactions. As a result, the ruthenium(II) NCP complex bearing a 2-thiopyridine moiety, together with aqueous H

as an oxidant showed the highest selectivity for benzaldehyde (benzaldehyde/styrene oxide=20 : 1)..

Ryusei Tsuruga, Narumi Uehara, Yuki Suzuki, Hiroyuki Furuta, Hiroshi Sugiyama, Masayuki Endo, Shigeyoshi Matsumura, Yoshiya Ikawa, Oligomerization of a modular ribozyme assembly of which is controlled by a programmable RNA–RNA interface between two structural modules, Journal of Bioscience and Bioengineering, 10.1016/j.jbiosc.2019.04.003, 2019.01, Bimolecular ribozymes derived by physical dissection of unimolecular ribozymes consisting of two structural modules are promising platforms for the design and construction of assembled RNA nanostructures. Unit RNAs to be assembled intermolecularly into one-dimensional (1D) oligomers are designed by reconnecting the two structural modules in a manner different from the parent ribozymes. This strategy was applied to the Tetrahymena group I ribozyme. We constructed 1D ribozyme oligomers the assembly of which was observed by atomic force microscopy (AFM) and also controlled rationally to design a heterooctamer by differentiating the interface between the two modules..

Akihide Nishiyama, Masaya Fukuda, Shigeki Mori, Ko Furukawa, Heike Fliegl, Hiroyuki Furuta, Soji Shimizu, Rational Synthesis of Antiaromatic 5,15-Dioxaporphyrin and Oxidation into β,β-Linked Dimers, Angewandte Chemie - International Edition, 10.1002/anie.201804648, 57, 31, 9728-9733, 2018.07, 5,15-Dioxaporphyrin was synthesized for the first time by a nucleophilic aromatic substitution reaction of a nickel bis(α,α′-dibromodipyrrin) complex with benzaldoxime, followed by an intramolecular annulation of the α-hydroxy-substituted intermediate. This unprecedented molecule is a 20π-electron antiaromatic system, in terms of Hückel's rule of aromaticity, because lone pair electrons of oxygen atoms are incorporated into the 18π-electron conjugated system of the porphyrin. A theoretical analysis based on the gauge-including magnetically induced current method confirmed its antiaromaticity and a dominant inner ring pathway for the ring current. The unique reactivity of 5,15-dioxaporphyrin forming a β,β-linked dimer upon oxidation was also revealed..

Synthesis, Characterization, and Redox Reactivity, Journal of the American Chemical Society, 10.1021/jacs.8b01876, 140, 22, 6883-6892, 2018.06, Stable square planar organocopper(III) complexes (CuNCC2, CuNCC4, and CuBN) supported by carbacorrole-based tetradentate macrocyclic ligands with NNNC coordination cores were synthesized, and their structures were elucidated by spectroscopic means including X-ray crystallographic analysis. On the basis of their distinct planar structures, X-ray absorption/photoelectron spectroscopic features, and temperature-independent diamagnetic nature, these organocopper complexes can be preferably considered as novel organocopper(III) species. The remarkable stability of the high-valent Cu(III) states of the complexes stems from the closed-shell electronic structure derived from the peculiar NNNC coordination of the corrole-modified frameworks, which contrasts with the redox-noninnocent radical nature of regular corrole copper(II) complexes with an NNNN core. The proposed structure was supported by DFT (B3LYP) calculations. Furthermore, a π-laminated dimer architecture linked through the inner carbons was obtained from the one-electron oxidation of CuNCC4. We envisage that the precise manipulation of the molecular orbital energies and redox profiles of these organometallic corrole complexes could eventually lead to the isolation of yet unexplored high-valent metal species and the development of their organometallic reactions..
16. Saki Inuzuka, Hitoshi Kakizawa, Kei Ichiro Nishimura, Takuto Naito, Katsushi Miyazaki, Hiroyuki Furuta, Shigeyoshi Matsumura, Yoshiya Ikawa, Recognition of cyclic-di-GMP by a riboswitch conducts translational repression through masking the ribosome-binding site distant from the aptamer domain, Genes to Cells, 10.1111/gtc.12586, 23, 6, 435-447, 2018.06, The riboswitch is a class of RNA-based gene regulatory machinery that is dependent on recognition of its target ligand by RNA tertiary structures. Ligand recognition is achieved by the aptamer domain, and ligand-dependent structural changes of the expression platform then usually mediate termination of transcription or translational initiation. Ligand-dependent structural changes of the aptamer domain and expression platform have been reported for several riboswitches with short (<40 nucleotides) expression platforms. In this study, we characterized structural changes of the Vc2 c-di-GMP riboswitch that represses translation of downstream open reading frames in a ligand-dependent manner. The Vc2 riboswitch has a long (97 nucleotides) expression platform, but its structure and function are largely unknown. Through mutational analysis and chemical probing, we identified its secondary structures that are possibly responsible for switch-OFF and switch-ON states of translational initiation..

Helically Twisted Bis(Boron Difluoride) Complex of π-Extended Corrorin, Chemistry - A European Journal, 10.1002/chem.201705516, 24, 18, 4628-4634, 2018.03, A novel helically twisted π-extended corrorin derivative having two boron dipyrrin (BODIPY) moieties at the periphery, a BODIPY DYEmer (6-BF2) cross-bridged with π-conjugated dipyrrinylidene unit, was synthesized and characterized. The neutral 6-BF2 is nonfluorescent due to the internal photoinduced charge transfer (CT) character in the excited state as inferred from the femtosecond transient absorption spectroscopy. However, upon protonation, the CT process is suppressed and the species H6-BF2 + becomes near infrared (IR) emissive. With the aid of rigid helical conformations in 6-BF2, the helical isomers (P- and M-forms) were resolved and their chiroptical property was investigated. The distinct circular dichroism (CD) spectral changes of the enantiomers were observed in the presence of acids, which demonstrates that 6-BF2 can be utilized for potential acid-responsive chiroptical materials..

A Bioinspired Ligand as a Versatile Platform for Catalysis, European Journal of Inorganic Chemistry, 10.1002/ejic.201701494, 2018, 2, 203-207, 2018.01, Bioinspired pentadentate ligand N-confused porphyrin (NCP) bearing a 2-mercaptopyridine group and its RuII and CoIII complexes were synthesized. Their structures were revealed by single-crystal X-ray crystallographic analysis. Installation of an axial thiopyridine ligand shifts the redox potentials negatively and enhances the catalytic activity largely, which was demonstrated in the cyclopropanation reaction using the Co complex..
19. Takaaki Yamamoto, Koki Mitsuno, Shigeki Mori, Shuhei Itoyama, Yoshihito Shiota, Kazunari Yoshizawa, Masatoshi Ishida, Hiroyuki Furuta, Two Discrete RuCp* (Cp*=Pentamethylcyclopentadienyl) Binding Modes of N-Confused Porphyrins
Peripheral π Complex and Sitting Atop Ruthenocenophane Complex by Skeletal Transformation, Chemistry - A European Journal, 10.1002/chem.201801237, 2018.01, Complexation of a RuCp* cation with N-confused tetraarylporphyrins (NCPs) forms directly bound ruthenium(II) pentamethylcyclopentadienyl (Cp*) π-complex on a specific meso-aryl group (e.g., phenyl) neighboring peripheral imino nitrogen of NCPs in high yields. In contrast, in the case of NCPs bearing bulky meso-substituents (e.g., 3,5-di-tert-butylphenyl), new ruthenocenophane-like complex embedded on an N-confused calix[4]phyrin was formed through multiple C-H bond activation of methyl groups of Cp* ligand. The mechanistic insight into the formation of the ruthenocenophane was derived from DFT calculations..

Panchromatic absorption of a pyrrolopyrrole aza-BODIPY dimer, Materials Chemistry Frontiers, 10.1039/c7qm00438a, 2, 1, 112-120, 2018.01, Dimerization of the so-called pyrrolopyrrole aza-BODIPY, which is a new class of aza-BODIPY analogues exhibiting intense absorption and emission in the visible (Vis) and near infrared (NIR) region, via a bithienyl linkage led to the creation of a novel black dye with dual emission and panchromatic absorption properties in the Vis/NIR region. The role of the linkage in the dye was unambiguously elucidated by comparison of the optical properties with those of its biphenyl-linked counterpart..

X-ray spectroscopy supported the divalent character of the inner copper centers, and electron paramagnetic resonance and magnetometric studies suggested the presence of unpaired d electrons strongly antiferromagnetically coupled with π-radicals delocalized on the macrocycle. The 25 π non-innocent dioxohexaphyrin ligand allowed the facile interconversion between antiaromatic 24 π and aromatic 26 π species, respectively, upon redox reactions..

Upon bis-metal coordination, fixation of fully π-conjugated Figure-of-eight structures was achieved as referred from the X-ray crystal structure. Chirogenesis of the helical enantiomers was proved by intense circular dichroism (CD) response in the near infrared (NIR) region..
23. Hideaki Matsuo, Motoki Toganoh, Masatoshi Ishida, Shigeki Mori, Hiroyuki Furuta, Stereoretentive Ligand Exchange Reactions of N-Fused Porphyrin Ruthenium(II) Complexes, Inorganic Chemistry, 10.1021/acs.inorgchem.7b01972, 56, 22, 13842-13851, 2017.11, The ligand exchange reactions of the ruthenium(II) complex of N-fused tetraphenylporphyrin, Ru(NFp)(CO)2Cl (2), with various anions were investigated. The chloride ligand of the isomers 2a-c was stereoretentively exchanged with bromide (Br-), iodide (I-), and acetate (AcO-) anions in toluene at 100 °C, structures of which were confirmed by 1H NMR as well as single crystal X-ray diffraction analysis. The silver (AgOAc, AgOTf) and boron (NaBPh4) reagents also afforded the corresponding stereoretentive products. On the other hand, the reaction with NaBH4 afforded the hydride complex Ru(NFp)(CO)2H (7) with low stereospecificity, showing a higher reactivity of 2c than other isomers. The ligand dissociation mechanism was proposed with the help of theoretical calculations on the plausible five-coordinated intermediates..

The explicit structures of these organoplatinum(II) complexes were elucidated by single-crystal X-ray diffraction and spectroscopic studies. The introduction of N-confused pyrrole rings to the parent calix[4]phyrin scaffold was found to have profound effects on the photophysical properties, such as the bathochromic shifts of both the absorption and phosphorescence maxima. The triplet excited state properties of these platinum complexes were analyzed by DFT calculations at the B3LYP level.

Among four possible isomers, trans-3H and cis-2H types of structures, of which aromaticity and absorption/emission properties differ largely, were isolated. The cis-isomer was largely stabilized by the intramolecular hydrogen bonding between the pyrrolic-NH and the pyridinic-N in the vicinity. The thermal cis-trans isomerization proceeded even at 30 °C, which was significantly accelerated by the pyridine added to the system. The kinetic studies revealed that the isomerization reaction was second-order and the activation energy of the thermal isomerization from cis to trans isomer was ΔG0cis→trans = 35.7 kcal/mol at 298 K, which is significantly smaller than that of Ni complex (42.3 kcal/mol). An intermolecular proton transfer induced cis-trans isomerization mechanism was proposed..

Takahiro Tanaka, Yusuke Hirata, Yuto Tominaga, Hiroyuki Furuta, Shigeyoshi Matsumura, Yoshiya Ikawa, Heterodimerization of Group I Ribozymes Enabling Exon Recombination through Pairs of Cooperative trans-Splicing Reactions, ChemBioChem, 10.1002/cbic.201700053, 18, 16, 1659-1667, 2017.08, Group I (GI) self-splicing ribozymes are attractive tools for biotechnology and synthetic biology. Several trans-splicing and related reactions based on GI ribozymes have been developed for the purpose of recombining their target mRNA sequences. By combining trans-splicing systems with rational modular engineering of GI ribozymes it was possible to achieve more complex editing of target RNA sequences. In this study we have developed a cooperative trans-splicing system through rational modular engineering with use of dimeric GI ribozymes derived from the Tetrahymena group I intron ribozyme. The resulting pairs of ribozymes exhibited catalytic activity depending on their selective dimerization. Rational modular redesign as performed in this study would facilitate the development of sophisticated regulation of double or multiple trans-splicing reactions in a cooperative manner..

An “Expanded Imidazole” Structural Motif, Chemistry - A European Journal, 10.1002/chem.201701958, 23, 47, 11375-11384, 2017.08, Complexation of group 11 metal cations with an α-bis(phenylthio)-substituted trans-doubly N-confused porphyrin (trans-N2CPSPh: 4) afforded a series of square-planar trivalent organometallic complexes (i.e., Cu-H4, Ag-H4, and Au-H4). The X-ray crystal structures of the complexes revealed highly planar core geometries along with the presence of peripheral amine and imine nitrogen sites of the pyrrolic moieties. NMR, UV/Vis absorption, and magnetic circular dichroism (MCD) spectroscopies suggested the 18 π-electron aromaticity of the complexes. The aromaticity was also fully analyzed by various theoretical methodologies such as nucleus-independent chemical shift (NICS) and anisotropic induced current density (ACID) calculations. The central metal affects the amphiprotic character of the complexes possessing both pyrrolic amino nitrogen and imino nitrogen atoms at the periphery, which was examined by the photometric titration with trifluoroacetic acid (TFA) and 1,8-diazabicyclo[5.4.0]undec-7-ene (DBU), respectively. The inherent acidity of the complexes was followed in the order; Cu-H4>Au-H4>Ag-H4 and that of basicity was Au-H4>Ag-H4>Cu-H4. The complexes could be considered as an “expanded imidazole” structural motif..

Möbius and Hückel topological structures of [4+2]-type and [3+2]-type expanded porphyrazines, respectively, were elucidated by X-ray crystallography. Despite the Möbius and Hückel [4n]π-electron systems, these expanded porphyrazines are virtually nonaromatic as a result of their flexible structures in solution, which may diminish intrinsic aromaticity and antiaromaticity..

Synthesis, energy transfer, computational and electrochemical studies, Inorganic Chemistry Frontiers, 10.1039/c6qi00558f, 4, 4, 618-638, 2017.04, A series of donor-acceptor type trans-A2B2 porphyrins and their Zn(ii) and Pd(ii) complexes 5-13 have been synthesized and characterized by various spectroscopic techniques. The effect of the donor moieties (e.g., N-butylcarbazole, N-butylphenothiazine, and triphenylamine) on the spectroscopic properties of the porphyrins has been studied. The structural changes indeed affected the optical and electrochemical properties of these porphyrins. Higher energy shifts of the Soret bands were observed for porphyrins upon varying the donor moieties. The electrochemical studies of all the derivatives indicated increased interactions between the donor groups and the porphyrin core, which in turn are reflected in the anodic shifts in their reduction potentials. Both steady-state and time-resolved fluorescence studies revealed effective energy transfer (EET; up to 87%) from donor groups to the porphyrin core in the porphyrins, 5-10. The palladium(ii) porphyrin complexes, 11-13, showed characteristic phosphorescence in the near IR region. Density functional theory (DFT) studies support the presence of donor-acceptor interaction between the porphyrin core and the meso-substituents in the dyads. Density functional theory (DFT) and time dependent-density functional theory (TD-DFT) studies showed that in 5, 8 and 11, the transitions are of π → π∗ type; whereas in the other molecules viz.6, 7, 9, 10, 12 and 13 intramolecular charge transfer (ICT) is involved in all the respective highest intensity absorption transitions..
