Cruciform porphyrin pentamers 15 and 16 are obtained in good yield by acid-catalyzed tetramerization of ZnII-pyrroloporphyrin 14, followed by oxidation with DDQ; pyrroloporphyrins are in turn obtained from the corresponding pyrrolochlorins by Diels-Alder type reactions of porphyrins involving thermal extrusion of sulfur dioxide from a pyrrole-fused 3-sulfolene.
