Abstract

A series of metalloporphyrin dimers were modularly prepared and shown to catalyze the methanolysis of a phosphate triester, yielding rates that are large compared to the rate of the uncatalyzed reaction. Up to 1300-fold rate acceleration can be achieved via a combination of cavity-localized Lewis-acid activation and methoxide-induced methanolysis.
