Abstract

The crystal structures of two zinc(II) 5,15-dioxo-porphyrins (porphodimethenes) have been determined to investigate the coordination chemistry of porphyrins with interrupted conjugation system. Both compounds have a five-coordinated zinc center with pyridine as axial ligand and show overall structural parameters very similar to porphyrins. The oxidized meso-positions are, however, easily identified by longer Cm-Ca bond lengths and smaller Ca-Cm-Ca angles. The macrocycles exhibit a small degree of conformational distortion, and the etioporphyrin I derivative shows evidence for π-stacking in the crystal. Crystal data: 1 -C41H47N502Zn. Triclinic, a = 10.052(3) Å, b = 14.139(4) Å, c = 14.635(5) Å, α = 105.17(2)°,β = 108.62(3)°, γ = 106.29(2)°, V = 1745.3(9) Å3, CuK α radiation, λ = 1.54178 Å, space group PI, Z = 2, R = 0.089. 2 - C37H39N5O2Zn. Triclinic, a = 12.122(3) Å, b = 12.383(3) Å, c = 12.759(4) Å, α = 61.77(2)°, β = 72.19(2)°, γ = 70.32(2)°, V = 1563.8(8) Å3, CuKα radiation, λ = 1.54178 Å, space group P 1, Z = 2, R = 0.076. © 1993, Walter de Gruyter.
