Dipyrromethanes are useful mediator structures which can be used as a part of other molecules such as bis-porphyrins and their derivations. Various methods have been developed for their synthesis. This study presents the synthesis of a new bis- dipyrromethane, 7,12-bis(4-(di(1H-pyrrol-2-yl)methyl)phenyl)benzo[k]fluoranthene, using the Lewis acid catalyzed reaction between a new dialdehyde and pyrrole at room temperature. The UV spectroscopic and fluorometric properties of the final product and precursors were determined. The newly synthesized product with desirable UV spectroscopic and fluorometric properties has the potential to be applied as a part of bisporphyrins or it can be used for other purposes in future studies.
