Peculiarities of the unique structure of porphyrins, possibilities of their peripheral functionalization, ability of metal complexes to extracoordination allow to use them for inclusion in porphyrin-polymer systems in order to endow them with specific properties, determined by tetrapyrrole macrocyclic compounds and their complexes. Porphyrins and their analogues being immobilised on a polymer carrier not only preserve their useful properties, but even strengthen them due to co-operative interactions in polymer chains, separation of active centres, increase of stability of tetrapyrrole fragments This review systematise methods of synthesis of meso-phenyl substituted porphyrins which can be used for fastening on a polymer-carrier. The general approaches to functionalization of porphyrin monomers and their immobilization on synthetic polymers by macromolecular reactions and copolymerization are considered. Strategy of porphyrin-polymer syntheses is based on the previoiusly obtained regularities of mutual influence of the structure of tetrapyrrolic macroheterocycles and polymer-carriers and their ability to self-organization.
