(Chemical Equation Presented) The synthesis of five new meso-tetraarylporphyrins having pyridine, pyrimidine, or nitrile groups extending tetragonally via alkynyl linkages from the para positions is described. The radial extension is nearly double that of common porphyrins such as tetra-p-pyridylporphyrin. Practical quantities can be produced by Pd-coupling protocols when traditional methods fail. Applications of these extended porphyrins in the area of porous metal-organic frameworks are anticipated. © 2007 American Chemical Society.
