Abstract

We report a highly convergent and modular approach for the synthesis of dissymmetric cofacial porphyrin complexes, which is based upon the weak-link approach to supramolecular coordination chemistry. Specifically, we have utilized a halide-induced ligand rearrangement reaction, which is capable of providing heteroligated mixed-metal porphyrin complexes in quantitative yield. Significantly, the adoption of a coordination chemistry based approach for the synthesis of these complexes allows for facile in situ regulation of the porphyrin-porphyrin interactions through the addition of external chemical stimuli.
