The examination of porphyrins and phthalocyanines and their metal complexes remains a pillar of the chemical sciences spanning fundamental chemistry and applications to biological chemistry and design of advanced materials. While the chemistry of the metalloporphyrins and metallophthalocyanines has been extensively explored, the metal chemistry of many of the analogs and isomers of the porphyrin macrocycle has only recently matured into a significant field. With recent significant advances in the organic chemistry of aromatic polypyrrolic macrocycles, leading to the easy availability of porphyrin analogs and isomers, research into the metal chemistry of these compounds is allowing a deeper understanding of their role in biochemistry and the development of new molecules with exciting applications in medicine, catalysis, materials science, and sensors. "Metal Chemistry of Porphyrinoids" summarizes these recent synthetic developments, particularly in respect of metallation strategies for freebase porphyrinoids, as well as progress towards applications in areas such as sensor and optical materials, catalysis and medicine. This reference summarizes those developments as well as progress towards a variety of applications which mirror the many uses of normal porphyrins and phthalocyanines. Applications discussed include sensor and optical materials and medical applications, including radiopharmaceuticals and photodynamic therapy.
