Cu(II)-catalyzed intramolecular cyclization of meso-(4-aminopyrid-3-yl) ethynyl Zn(II) porphyrin provided meso-(5-azaindol-2-yl)-substituted Zn(II) porphyrin. meso,meso′-Bis(5-azaindol-2-yl)-substituted diporphyrin 7 was similarly prepared and was found to form a fluorescent trimeric prismatic assembly consisting of single atropisomer 7in-in.
