Syntheses of meso-Azachlorins and meso-Azabacteriochlorins
Starting from azaporphyrins, new classes of chlorins and bacteriochlorins are synthesized using Diels-Alder or osmium tetraoxide reactions. Their strong absorption at long wavelength and easy synthesis suggests they may be promising potential candidates as sensitizers for use in photodynamic therapy of neoplasms. © 1994.
