Microwave-Assisted Synthesis and Reactivity of Porphyrins

Author(s): Marta Pineiro

Affiliation: Departamento de Química, Universidade de Coimbra, Rua Larga 3004-535 Coimbra, Portugal.


This paper describes past and current microwave-assisted methodologies for the synthesis of porphryins and porphyrin derivatives, including porphyrin precursors such as dipyrromethanes. The review is organized in two main topics, porphyrin synthesis and porphyrin reactivity under microwave irradiation and covers solventless and solution reactions.

Keywords: Hydroporphyrin, metalloporphyrin, microwave irradiation, microwave synthesis, porphyrin, tetrapyrrolic macrocycles.
