For the total synthesis of 3- and 8-(2,2,2-trifluoro-1-hydroxyethyl)deuteroporphyrin dimethyl esters (2, and 3) in a large scale by ring closure, the camphanyl ester (5) of the titled ester (4) was resolved, but hydrolysis of the resolved 5 was unsuccessful. Oxidation of 4 with Dess-Martin reagent gave 3-trifluoromethylcarbonyl compound (6), which was reduced with catecholborane in the presence of a chiral catalyst to a chiral isomer of 4 in a high enantiomeric excess.
