Abstract

The synthesis of protoporphyrin-l dimethyl ester (2) via the b-oxobilane route is reported. Fractional crystallisation was unsuccessful in the separation of the dimethyl esters of protoporphyrin-l and protoporphyrin-IX and also the tetramethyl esters of coproporphyrins -I and -III; the significance of these observations, in relation to biosynthetic investigations, is discussed.
