Aluminum, gallium, germanium, copper, and phosphorus complexes of meso -triaryltetrabenzocorrole
5,10,15-Triaryltetrabenzocorrole complexes of aluminum, gallium, germanium, and phosphorus were synthesized by coordination of these metal ions in the preformed triaryltetrabenzocorrole macrocycle, opening a way to the investigation of different metal complexes. The UV-vis spectra of these derivatives exhibit a red shift and broadening of all absorption bands because of the π-extended aromatic system and distortion of the molecular framework. The electrochemical and photophysical behaviors of the free base and the metal complexes of meso-triaryltetrabenzocorrole were investigated and characterized. © 2013 American Chemical Society.
