Boron porphyrin and corrole complexes

The chemistry of boron porphyrins, which are unique in containing two boron atoms per porphyrin ligand. Highlights have been the development of a series of complexes, a diboryl porphyrin, a diboranyl porphyrin containing a  B-B bond which forms through spontaneous reductive coupling of the diboryl under certain conditions.chemimage
