Abstract
Porphyrin-porphyrin and porphyrin-chlorin dimers have been synthesized and evaluated for their photo-physical and in vivo photodynamic therapy propert ies. Two of them can become potential new photosensitizers. Study of the re activity of meso-tetraaryl porphyrins, as dienophiles, in Diels-Alder trans formations and as dipolarophiles in 1,3-dipolar cycloadditions, has been un dertaken. New synthetic methodologies for certain chlorin, bacteriochlorin and isobacteriochlorin type macrocycles, with potential biological signific ance, have been established.
