Using Pd(0)-catalyzed amination reaction of zinc 5,15-bis(4-bromophenyl)porphyrinate with diazatrioxamacrocycle – derivative of 3,3’-disubstituted biphenyl – a series of polymacrocyclic compounds was obtained. The investigation of their fluorescence in the presence of 18 metal cations revealed that two of them can act as molecular probes for Cu(II), Al(III) and Cr(III) by the fluorescence quenching. Tri- and tetramacrocyclic compounds of another structure were synthesized by the Pd(0)-catalyzed arylation of cryptands comprising central diazacrown ether moieties using zinc 5-(4-bromophenyl)porphyrinate. One of these compounds was characterized as a fluorescent chemosensor for Cu(II).
