Synthesis and characterization of meso-substituted A2B corroles with extended ?-electronic structure
Sprache des Titels:
We report the chemical synthesis and characterization of the stable 5,15-bis(pentafluorophenyl)-10-(trimethylsilylethynyl)corrole which serves as a precursor for the subsequent in situ sila-Sonogashira-cross-coupling reaction and metalation with copper(II) acetate. Under ambient conditions and a common catalyst system the reaction with 1-iodopyrene occurred within five hours. Due to the direct conjugation of the 18?-electronic system of the corrole macrocycle over the alkynyl group to the pyrene moiety the optical transitions in the Soret (B-) band Q-band region are significantly altered. The copper corrole exhibited complex hyperfine and superhyperfine structure in the EPR spectrum. The assignment of the EPR spectrum reveals the existence of an axial [CuII-cor?+] species.
