The transition metal complexes of the non-innocent, electron-rich corrole macrocycle are discussed. A detailed summary of the investigations to determine the physical oxidation states of formally iron(IV) and cobalt(IV) corroles as well as formally copper(III) corroles is presented. Electronic structures and reactivity of other metallocorroles are also discussed, and comparisons between corrole and porphyrin complexes are made where data are available. The growing assortment of second-row corrole complexes is discussed and compared to first-row analogs, and work describing the synthesis and characterization of third-row corroles is summarized. Emphasis is placed on the role of spectroscopic and computational studies in elucidating oxidation states and electronic configuration.

Additional Information:© 2011 Springer-Verlag Berlin Heidelberg. Published online: 14 September 2011. I thank Harry Gray and Zeev Gross for introducing me to corroles, and Kyle Lancaster, Alec Durrell, Theis Brock-Nannestad, and all my other collaborators for working with me throughout my investigations of these macrocycles. Kyle Lancaster and Jeff Warren provided helpful advice on the preparation of this chapter, which is very much appreciated. I am also grateful to the Editors of Structure and Bonding for allowing me the opportunity to participate in this Special Volume dedicated to one of the great modern chemists. Additionally, I would like to express my gratitude to Robert Grubbs for allowing me to undertake this time-consuming endeavor while on a postdoctoral fellowship in his laboratory group.
