Meso-Iodo- and meso-iodovinylporphyrins via organopalladium porphyrins and the crystal structure of 5-iodo-10,20-diphenylporphyrin

Atefi, Farzad, Locos, Oliver B., Senge, Mathias O., & Arnold, Dennis P. (2006) Meso-Iodo- and meso-iodovinylporphyrins via organopalladium porphyrins and the crystal structure of 5-iodo-10,20-diphenylporphyrin. Journal of Porphyrins and Phthalocyanines, 10(3-4), pp. 176-185.


The regiospecific halogen exchange reactions of various easily accessible meso-bromoporphyrins to obtain meso-iodoporphyrins, using η1-palladioporphyrins as intermediates, have been investigated. This one-pot methodology allows the isolation of meso-iodoporphyrins in excellent yields with short reaction times. Similarly meso-(2-bromoethenyl)porphyrins can be converted to their iodoethenyl analogues. These iodoporphyrins show great potential as starting materials for various palladium catalysed reactions. The X-ray crystal structure of 5-iodo-10,20-diphenylporphyrin has been determined.

Search Google Scholar™

Citation counts are sourced monthly from Scopus and Web of Science® citation databases.

These databases contain citations from different subsets of available publications and different time periods and thus the citation count from each is usually different. Some works are not in either database and no count is displayed. Scopus includes citations from articles published in 1996 onwards, and Web of Science® generally from 1980 onwards.

Citations counts from the Google Scholar™ indexing service can be viewed at the linked Google Scholar™ search.
