Carbaporphyrins are porphyrin analogs in which one of more of the pyrrole units have been replaced with a carbocyclic ring. In this project the cyclopentadiene ring replacing a pyrrole ring has been fused with a naphthalene ring. This is done in order to observe the effects of the naphthalene ring on the spectroscopic properties and reactivity.
