meso-aryl expanded porphyrins, that can be regarded as real homologues of meso-tetraaryl porphyrins, were prepared by our synthetic protocol under the modified Rothemund-Lindsey conditions. This new class of molecules exhibits interesting spectral, electrochemical, and coordination properties. These promising features are emphasized, with a particular attention on the annulenic properties.
