Creating cool fusion: The oxidative fusion of meso-(diarylamino)porphyrins depends heavily on the structures of the diarylamino groups. Bridged diarylamino groups result in the oxidative fusion of 3,5-di-tert-butylphenyl groups to the porphyrin moiety (blue), while non-bridged diarylamino groups invoke formation of nitrogen-embedded aminophenylene-fused porphyrins (red).
