    • Abstract

       

      Different types of corroles and porphyrins are synthesized from substituted aldehydes and pyrrole. The current synthetic method involves iodine as catalyst and proceeds at room temperature itself. By varying the amounts of reactants (i.e., pyrrole and aldehydes), the corrole and porphyrins were obtained ingood to excellent yields. These products were characterized by 1H-NMR, UV-visible, and HRMS techniques. The reaction approach utilizes the readily available pyrrole and substituted aldehydes as starting materials and makes this reaction highly attractive in diversity-oriented synthesis
