Protoporphyrin-IX: Some useful substituent manipulations
Various substituent manipulations of the side chains in commercially available hemin (3) and its metal-free derivative, protoporphyrin-IX (4), are described, which illustrate the usefulness of these starting materials for preparation of a large number of theoretically, chemically, biologically, and spectroscopically useful porphyrins and hemes. © 1987.
