Supersized: Three pentaazapentaphyrin derivatives, that is, the superazaporphyrins (SAzPs), as well as a superphthalocyanine (SPc) and a mixed low-symmetry derivative have been prepared and characterized. Decaaryl SAzPs have a distorted (4n+2) πstructure and show the Q bands at about=840-880 nm. These compounds are relatively air stable.
