Get organized! Copper-catalyzed CP cross-coupling reactions are efficient and general methods for introducing phosphoryl groups at the meso position of a porphyrin ring. Zinc phosphorylporphyrins readily undergo self-organization through P–oxo–Zn coordination to form noncovalently linked, cofacial porphyrin dimers (see scheme).
