Selective cross-metathesis of type I and type II meso-functionalized porphyrin olefins afforded alkenyl-coupled dimeric and trimeric porphyrin systems in good yield with excellent E/Z selectivity. The synthetic utility of the method is demonstrated through the preparation of mixed metalated (M = 2H, Zn) porphyrin dimer and trimer.
