Syntheses of hematoporphyrin dimers and trimers with ether linkages
In order to aid in elucidation of the structure of the active components in hematoporphyrin derivative (Hpd), the first syntheses of an ether-linked hematoporphyrin dimer (6) and trimer (12) are described. After ester hydrolysis, these compounds were positively identified, by comparative HPLC, as components in Photofrin®-II. © 1988.
