Take the shortcut: The synthesis of core-modified meso aryl hexaphyrins with an internal thiophene bridge is reported. Introduction of the thiophene bridge alters the electronic structure as well as the π-electron circuit, resulting in increases in singlet lifetime (τs) and the two-photon absorption (TPA) cross-section. Furthermore, for the sulfur derivative, the internal bridging thiophene participates in a π-electron conjugation pathway.
