    Adding to the confusion: [3+2] coupling of confused tripyrrane and confused dipyrromethane dicarbinol, followed by oxidation, results in the synthesis of mesopentafluorophenyl-substituted, doubly N-confused, oxo-substituted pentaphyrins (see X-ray crystal structure; green: F, blue: N, red: O). The oxopyrrole moieties have been shown to readily form intra- and intermolecular hydrogen bonds.
