Abstract:

Recent progress in the chemistry of synthetic metalloporphyrins has shown that the porphyrin moiety can act as a bi-, tri- or hexadentate ligand, as well as the usual tetradentate ligand. In addition, the metal ion has been observed to possess 4, 5, 6 or 8-coordination. While the last few years has seen a substantial growth in metalloporphyrin research, a rapid development in a unique area of chemistry, out-of-plane metalloporphyrins, has been particularly noticeable. It would be impossible to cover all the developments in the space available thus, this article confines the discussion to the synthesis and structure of these out-of-plane complexes with unusual geometries.
