Abstract

This journal is © The Royal Society of Chemistry and the Centre National de la Recherche Scientifique 2016. Hans Fischer (Munich, Germany) and S. Fergus MacDonald (Ottawa, Canada) devised efficient porphyrin syntheses based on condensation reactions of dipyrromethenes (Fischer) or dipyrromethanes (MacDonald). These historically significant processes and subsequent developments are discussed, along with monopyrrole tetramerizations that give 5,10,15,20-tetra-arylporphyrins, to show that the art of porphyrin synthesis continues to flourish.
