Ni(III) Complex of N-Confused Porphyrin Inner C-Oxide
Xiao, Z., Patrick, B.O., and David Dolphin
A novel, structurally characterized Ni(III) complex of an N-confused porphyrin inner C-oxide has been synthesized from the oxidation of a Ni(II) N-confused porphyrin using OsO4. Crystal data: C53H40N5NiO•CH2Cl2, monoclinic, space group P2/a (No. 13), a = 21.229(1) Å, b = 8.6451(5) Å, c = 25.762(2) Å, β = 93.004(3)o, V = 4721.6(5) Å3, and Z = 4.
