An investigation of the synthesis of dodecaarylporphyrins using the Suzuki coupling reaction of arylboronic acids with octabromotetraarylporphyrins is reported. Variable temperature 1H NMR studies of these new porphyrins reveal several dynamic processes including the first examples of β-aryl rotation.
