Accounts of Chemical Research paper accepted for publication

Over the past 15 years, our group developed the ‘Breaking and Mending’ strategy of converting porphyrins to porphyrin analogs containing non-pyrrolic building blocks, and this work has become the mainstay of our current work. In the Accounts of Chemical Research paper (Brückner, C. ‘The Breaking and Mending of meso-Tetraarylporphyrins: Transmuting the Pyrrolic Building Blocks’ Acc. Chem. Res. 201649, 1080−1092.), the strategy was summarized and diversity of structures accessible is highlighted. An artistic representation of the concept is gracing the issue No 6 of the Accounts!
