oa South African Journal of Chemistry - The synthesis and characterization of several corroles : research article



Preliminary results towards the synthesis of a corrole-based vitamin B analogue are reported. The synthesis of three simple corroles, 5,10,15-triphenylcorrole (TPCrl), 5,10,15-tri(2-nitrophenyl)corrole and 10-(4-methoxyphenyl)-5,15-diphenylcorrole is described. The synthesis of 10-[2-(benzoylamino)phenyl]-5,15-diphenylcorrole (DPAPCrl) suggests that a large, bulky substituent can be incorporated into the corrole with no loss of stability or significant decrease in yield. Both TPCrl and DPAPCrl were crystallized and their crystal structure is reported.
