In the field of materials science, π-conjugated molecules bearing a group 16 heteroatom are of great importance. Sulfur or selenium containing porphyrins were successfully synthesized using the transition-metal-catalyzed reaction with diphenyl dichalcogenides. NMR studies indicated the preferential formation of the (Z)-isomer.
