Abstract

The novel compounds of the present invention are f-octafluoro-meso-tetraarylporphyrins of formula (I) and their metallic complexes of formula (II):

B-octafluoro-meso-tetraaryl porphyrins are Synthesized by reacting 3,4-difluoropyrrole with an aromatic aldehyde in the presence of boron trifluoride etherate, followed by oxidation. The difluoropyrrole used in this reaction is pro duced by reacting 3,3,4,4-tetrafluoropyrroline or its corre sponding Salt, 3,3,4,4-tetrafluoropyrrolidinium Salt, with a base Such as potassium tert-butoxide. The metalloporphyrins of the present invention are Synthesized by deprontonating B-octafluoro-meso-tetraarylporphyrin ligands and treating Said ligands with metal ions.
