Porphycenes, the first structural isomer of porphyrin, display unique chemical and photophysical properties. In this Account, we detail our group's individual and collaborative efforts in elucidating further the chemical properties of porphycene. Particular emphasis will be placed on recent efforts devoted to expanding the porphycene core. 1 Introduction 2 Exploring the Chemistry of Porphycene 3 Synthesis and Metalation of an Expanded Porphycene 4 Conclusion.
