4-Nitrophenyl N-[4-(10,15,20-triphenylporphyrin-5-yl)phenyl]carbamate and 5-[4-(N-glycylamino)phenyl]-10,15,20-triphenylporphyrin have been synthesised from a readily prepared monofunctionalised porphyrin; they couple efficiently with the side-chains of extended lysyl and glutamyl peptide derivatives, respectively.
