Abstract: A new motif for artificial double helices was developed on the basis of α, α′-disubstituted tripyrrin. α, α′-Dibromotripyrrin 3 was prepared by gentle bromination at the pyrrolic α-positions of 5, 10-diphenyltripyrrane followed by oxidation with DDQ. Nucleophilic substitution reactions of 3 with anilines proceeded efficiently to furnish a series of α, α′-dianilinotripyrrins 4–11, which displayed monomeric and dimeric forms depending upon the solvent used for crystallization and the structures of the substituted anilines. Dimeric forms show double helical structures with smooth π-conjugation as indicated by their absorption spectra. van't-Hoff plot analyses revealed that the dimerizations in CDCl3 are enthalpy-driven. Larger association constants of the dimerization are attained for 3, 5-di-t-butylanilino- and 3, 5-bis(trifluoromethyl)anilino-substituted tripyrrins (7 and 8) via additional multiple intermolecular interactions. In a nonpolar and aprotic solvent, tripyrrins (9 and 10) bearing bulkier 1-naphthylamino and mesitylamino groups do not dimerize but undergo unique tautomerization.
