meso-Tetraphenylporphyrin and its β-nitro zinc complex derivative react at higher temperature with unstable alkyl nitrile oxides affording isoxazoline-fused chlorins according to dipolar [3+2]-cycloaddition pathway. The respective nitrile oxides were in situ generated from the corresponding nitroalkanes in the presence of triethylamine and phenyl isocyanate. The products obtained are attractive intermediates for further functionalization of porphyrins and may be of potential use as sensitizers in photodynamic therapy.
