Nonaromatic benzocorroles


Introduced here are new hybrid benzocorrole ligands, displaying both the cavity size of corroles and the dianionic character of porphyrins. Nonaromatic and yet sporting deceptively porphyrin-like optical spectra, they are readily accessible via a simple three-step synthetic protocol.
