[Ni(cod)2]-mediated intramolecular reductive coupling of β–β’ linked meso,meso’-dibromosubporphyrin dimer gave the anti-isomer of meso–meso’, β–β’ doubly linked subporphyrin dimer as the first example of a fused subporphyrin dimer. The fused dimer 3anti displays an wavelike coplanar structure, a perturbed and red-shifted absorption spectrum, reversible redox behaviors with a decreased electrochemical HOMO–LUMO band gap, and a short S1-state lifetime owing to the delocalized π-electronic network.
