The first representative of a new class of porphyrins featuring a tetramethine bridge joining the 2 and 20 positions of the macrocycle has been prepared and found to undergo the Diels-Alder reaction, yielding structures in which functional groups are linked to the porphyrin macrocycle through a rigid, bicyclic bridge.
