Abstract

Zinc(II) δ-trifluoroacetoxypheophorbides (5, 10) undergo macrocyclic ring cleavage, via zinc(II) oxochlorins after alkaline hydrolysis, to give dihydrobiliverdins (7, 11) in which the two lactam oxygen atoms are shown, by 18O2 labeling experiments, to be derived from two different dioxygen molecules. © 1988.
