The fluorescence intensity of phosphorus corroles increases upon meso-Aryl C-F/C-H and P-OH/P-F substitutions, the latter affects corrole-centered redox processes more than C-H/C-F substitution on the corrole's skeleton, and the presence of F atoms allows for the first experimental insight into the electronic structures of oxidized corroles. Experimental and theoretical methodologies reveal that mono-but not bis-chlorosulfonation of the corrole skeleton is under kinetic control. Selective introduction of heavy atoms leads to complexes that are phosphorescent at room temperature.
