Abstract We report the first use of the Dess-Martin periodinane (DMP) for the oxidation of an arylamine to an alpha -dione. The methodology is illustrated by the preparation of free-base and metal chelated porphyrin-alpha -diones in up to 52% yield by oxidation of 2-aminoporphyrins with the DMP. We also found that DMP could be used to oxidise a 2,3-diaminoporphyrin to a porphyrin-alpha -dione in good yield with other free-base diaminoporphyrin isomers forming a trans-porphyrintetraone in 20% yield.
