Singly twisted Möbius antiaromatic [34]heptaphyrin A and doubly twisted Hückel aromatic [34]heptaphyrin B were formed by a phosphorus insertion reaction. A rearranges thermally to give the more stable B with P[DOUBLE BOND]O migration from NNN to NNC, and thus A is a rare case of a kinetically controlled Möbius antiaromatic molecule.
