Abstract

original image

Ein Heteroporphyrin mit einer Thienopyrrol-Einheit wurde hergestellt, dessen nichtaromatischer Charakter klar durch UV/Vis-Absorption, 1H-NMR-Spektroskopie und theoretische Studien nachgewiesen wurde. Eine Einkristall-Röntgenstrukturanalyse zeigt, dass das Molekül eine ebene Konformation einnimmt, in der die äußeren C-C-Bindungslängen des Makrocyclus deutlich abwechseln.
