Corrole is one of the first examples of porphyrin analogs reported in the literature. This class of compounds has received a great attention, because of their promising exploitation in different fields, ranging from medicine to material chemistry. Among them, corrole can be considered the prototypical example of contracted porphyrins, with one of the meso carbon bridges missing. Although this macrocycle was first reported more than thirty years ago, only recently more attention has been devoted to the chemistry of corrole. The recent availability of efficient and facile syntheses of meso-substituted corroles has probably been the shuttle for the impressive flourishing of corrole-related papers appearing in literature in the last few years. The aim of this review is to highlight the latest reports in the synthetic chemistry of corrole, with special attention to the synthetic strategies and peripheral functionalizations of this macrocycle.
