The Characterization of Different, N-Confused Porphyrins, More Specifically 5,10,15,20-tetra-4-chlorobenzyl-2-aza-21-carbaporphyrin and 5,10,15,20-tetra-(3,5-carboxylphenyl)-2-aza-21-carbaporphyrin

Introducing porphyrins into three dimensional network solids has become our focus of research over the last few months. In particular we are looking at the potential applications of specific N-confused porphyrins and whether or not they provide more stability for the network solid. Synthesis of N-Confused and Doubly N-Confused was completed systematically with 2+2 addition. Many spectroscopic methods were used for characterization, X-ray crystallography being the most important because of the ability calculate specific bond lengths and bond angles which can then be used to determine specific substituants needed for a certain channel diameter in the network solid. Characterization will allow for a better insight into the metal coordination possibilities. We expect creating slightly ionic meso- position substituants we can increase bonding stability between these substituants and the metalloporphyrin complex.
