Transformation of 3-vinylchlorins into azidomethyl-derivatives was investigated for chlorin p6 trimethyl ester. The azide group allows modifying chlorophyll derivatives on pyrrole ring A by the use of “click reaction” with terminal alkynes. As an example, reaction with phenylacetylene was carried out.
