Synthesis and electrochemistry of undeca-substituted metallo- benzoylbiliverdins
The high-yield preparation of metallo-benzoylbiliverdins 9, 10, and 11 from either oxidation of dodeca-substituted porphyrin 6 in the presence of NaNO 2/TFA and air followed by metalation or by reaction of the Ni(II) or Cu(II) complexes of 6 with m-chloroperoxybenzoic acid in pyridine under air is reported. The X-ray structures of complexes 9 and 10 and the electrochemistry and spectroelectrochemistry of metallo-benzoylbiliverdins 9-11 are presented and discussed. © 2006 American Chemical Society.
