An hydrogenation method for the reduction of the easy accessible meso-octaalkylporphirinogen (calix[4]pyrrole) has previously been reported in our group. This “standard method” leads to an unsatisfactory conversion to the saturated analogue, calix[4]pyrrolidine (18% yield determined by GC). However using large excess of the catalyst leads to total conversion. In order to study...
