The synthesis and spectroscopic properties of a series of boron-free meso-aryl-substituted [14]triphyrin(2.1.1) compounds containing either peripheral bicyclo[2.2.2]octadiene (BCOD) (2a-c) or benzene rings (3a-c) (aryl = phenyl a, 4-fluorophenyl b, and 4-methylbenzoatephenyl c) are reported. These compounds represent the first examples of free-base contracted porphyrinoids with 14 π-electron aromatic systems containing only the standard pyrrole and isoindoline moieties of the porphyrins and tetrabenzoporphyrins.
