The synthesis of three low symmetry A2B type Cu(III)-triarylcorroles with meso-arylsubstituents that provide push-pull electron-donating and electron-withdrawing properties is reported. An analysis of the structure-property relationships for the optical and redox properties has been carried out. The results demonstrate that A2B type Cu(III)-corroles are highly effective catalysts for hydrogen evolution, and the electrochemically catalytic properties could be facilely modulated by the electron withdrawing/donating ability of meso-substituent at B-positions.
