Extremely delocalized π-electronic systems are found in triply linked, fused porphyrins, which are formed by the oxidation of diporphyrins [Eq. (1)]. Stronger electronic interaction is observed in the triply linked diporphyrins, as evidenced by intensified and red-shifted Q bands and by lower one-electron oxidation potentials, as a consequence of their greater planarity. Hence they should have applications as electronic wires.
