Abstract

The structures of four Ni complexes and a free base related to tetrapentanoporphyrin (TC7P) and octaethylporphyrin (OEP) have been determined by X-ray crystallograpic methods. The Ni(II) complexes exhibit considerable S4-ruffling induced by coordination hole contraction due to the low spin Ni(II). The degree of conformational distortion is enhanced by one or two additional acrolein substituents at the meso positions. The steric strain imposed by interaction of the meso substituent with the neighboring β-pyrrole substituents leads to a significant displacement from the mean plane of the molecule of the meso carbon(s) involved. Increasing non-planarity of the macrocycles is correlated with shifts to longer wavelenghts in the absorption spectra. Ring closures of the acrolein group to afford benzochlorin type pigments results in further bathochromic shifts and a very non-planar molecular conformation. Long wavelength absorbing pigments such as benzochlorins are useful photosensitizers for photodynamic therapy and thus one criterion for a good photosensitizer might be its conformational distortion.
