Meso-Ester Corroles


Dedicated to Professor Mieczysław Józef Mąkosza on the occasion of his 80th birthday. Abstract: The introduction of ester groups on the 5 and 15 meso positions of corroles stabilizes them against oxidation and induces a red-shift of their absorption and emission spectra. These effects are studied through the photophysical and electrochemical characterization of up to sixteen different 5,15-diester corroles where the third meso position is free or occupied by an aryl group, a long alkyl chains or an ester moiety. The single crystal X-ray structure analysis of five 5,15-diestercorroles and Density Functional Theory (DFT) and Time Dependant Density Functional Theory (TD-DFT) calculations, show that the strong electron withdrawing character of the 5,15 ester substituents is reinforced by their π-overlapping with the macrocycle aromatic system. The crystal packings of corroles 2, 4, 6, 9 and 15 feature short distances between chromophores that are stacked into columns thanks to the low steric hindrance of meso ester groups. This close packing is partially due to intermolecular interactions involving inner hydrogen and nitrogen atoms and thereby stabilizing a single and identical corrole tautomeric form.
