Abstract

{Porphyrins containing one to four 3-pyridyl groups as meso-substituents were synthesized via a mixed aldehyde condensation, and then "N-oxidized" with m-chloroperbenzoic acid to produce five novel (oxidopyridyl) porphyrins and seven porphyrin-N-oxides which were characterized by analysis and spectroscopic methods, especially NMR; an X-ray crystal structure of 5-(1-oxido-4-pyridyl)-10, 15,20-triphenylporphyrin was also obtained. Crystals of (oxidopyridyl)triphenylporphyrin are tetragonal
